Think and Solve Like a Designer

Dawan Stanford, JD, PhD

My mission is helping people solve problems demanding new ways to get results.

Over 10 years ago, I founded Fluid Hive to apply design-driven innovation to big questions and help people and organizations learn and make the methods and practices their own. My passion is in supporting companies like yours with innovation problems, opportunities and challenges. As Fluid Hive’s President, I’m asking my big question:

How might we build better ways to help people think and solve like a designer?

My big question guides the projects I've led with organizations like the Aspen Institute and AARP. My big question shaped my work in university leadership positions applying design thinking to university strategy, leader coaching, and university-wide initiatives. That question fuels my conversations as the host of the Design Thinking 101 Podcast, and guided how I taught and created learning experiences as the Design Studio Director at Georgetown University’s Master of Arts in Learning, Design, and Technology.

How might my big question help you find and respond to yours? 

Fluid Hive helps people, organizations and companies to see, solve and act on problems that are complex, dynamic, and interconnected using our See-Solve-Act Framework. See you there!
