We have encountered that managers are designers who enable an organization to operate successfully in changing environments. Their roles are to identify complex social problems, and to synthesize new ideas and solutions in a digital society. Being a smart, competent manager requires a practical, organizational knowledge of business, of technology, and of design practices and techniques. This workshop explores design as a new practice in engineering and management education that serves the need for identifying innovation opportunities in all types of organizations. It is an art of business-design course series, focusing on a project-based learning that develops design skills in the context of engineering and management. Therefore, this workshop is designed to provide two things: the first is to understand and analyze the multiple, complex problems of information, systems, and design that you will encounter as a manager; the second is to identify opportunities for designing better ones by a design thinking approach。
