This is the most challenging exercise of the workshop. Your team will achieve consensus — you will brainstorm and then refine your ideas into an actual Community Collaboration Project that you all agree to work on together.

This is not easy work. And the design process is not easy. The design process allows us to be open to ideas for a longer period of time, but it also forces us to be constrained. We have deadlines to meet, budgets that can’t be changed, and specific success metrics and indicators that we want to achieve.

Design Thinking is an interactive process that is human centered. Always think about the people you are serving, helping, or trying to change.
