When designing medical products, the depth and breadth of information across user needs, technical challenges and business goals that must be analyzed can be inundating. A blank canvas of wide-open space can make it difficult to make decisions and zero in on opportunities. No matter what your skill set, having some foundational knowledge of strategic design methods can help provide the tools to gain a better perspective on how to make decisions that point the best way forward.

Spend just 30 minutes with Jim to learn more about:

  • How to identify the type of challenge and best scope for the effort
  • Frameworks for exploring solution spaces and cultivating insights that inform the process
  • Foundational methods for aesthetic strategies that resonate with users 
  • How companies have reimagined healthcare products and influenced current design trends
