When it comes to training future innovators, we must do more. Training programs like Stanford D-School or Cornell, even Masterclass and Coursera, are great ways to learn the principles of innovation and design thinking. But to truly learn this skill, you need to be hands-on and go into the field to apply your knowledge. This just isn’t possible in academia, which is why organizations should offer formal apprenticeships or hands-on coaching programs. This way, your innovators can integrate new design thinking and human-centered skillsets into their toolboxes.
