FUJITSU   Over six months we worked with Sunnyvale-based Fujitsu Labs of America to introduce design thinking methods to their R&D process, including field observation, brainstorming, and storyboarding. Their team gained innovation leadership skills and emerged with two possible initiatives.

UCLA ANDERSON   We helped integrate design thinking into the Clinic Leadership Institute (CLI), a program produced by Blue Shield Foundation California. We led workshops, observations, and mentoring conferences for a group of five community health clinics across California, one of which, Venice Family Clinic, remains a valued client.
