Class Description: 
This course focuses on innovation as a means of improving effectiveness and working smarter, and is built upon the idea that innovation is about changing paradigms. It is viewed as a process in which insight inspires change and creates value. Certain design methods like the development of prototypes help increase the speed of generating and testing the effectiveness of new ideas, while revealing new opportunities and unforeseen issues. The result is a process that is more collaborative, transparent and fully considered. Emphasis is placed upon rapid construction of prototypes, testing, revision, and learning about the strengths and weaknesses of an idea that may identify new and innovative directions. This studio course provides students with the ability to integrate knowledge through the process of learning by making, using rapidly produced prototypes. Upon completion of the course, students will demonstrate their ability to test innovative solutions using prototyping approaches. Prerequisites: DSI 5320 Leadership for Design Strategy + Innovation, DSI 5340 Business Foundations, DSI 5510 Design Thinking, and DSI 5530 Ideation
