We are shaking things up in 2019, and our Spring Conference is a great representation of our new developments. This year's event will be facilitated by Pedal, who specializes in designing products, services and experiences that people love. They accomplish this by uncovering actionable insights into the user’s world - the motivations, wants, needs, and tensions that drive behavior. This new information serves as the inspiration for better ideas that can be prototyped, tested, and refined into sustainable solutions.
Pedal uses a proven framework for innovation called Design Thinking.


Design Thinking is a human-centered process for innovation and program design. It utilizes a multi-phase process beginning with observing the end-user (the people your organization serves), moving towards synthesizing your insights to build prototypes or procedures, and, finally, actively testing your results. It is an active process that does not require a large budget but can lead to powerful results.

At the end of a design thinking project, you will have developed a solution that doesn’t carry the typical risk of failure because the end-user has informed the entire process. In summary, it is not about finding the solution but finding the right question to be answered or problem to be solved. If you make sure your organization has identified a worthy problem, you will truly be able to change lives.
