DepokMobi, a mobile developer community where we are also actively involved, recently held a Indonesia Design Thinking Workshop in CCIT Faculty of Engineering University of Indonesia with Putra Setia Utama, our own director, as one of the mentors. Also participating as mentor is Imanzah Iboy Nurhidayat from MakeDoNia community.
Design thinking itself is a method to find a solution for a problem by using empathy as the foundation. In the mini workshop, the mentors challenge the participants on how to create an interesting wallet and what is the best way to give a present.
30 participants of the workshop are divided into mini teams comprised of two people. Then, one of them was asked to interview his partner with design thinking method. Final result of this workshop is each of the participants created a prototype of what is desired by his partner.
