There comes a point when you can no longer rely on the Magic 8 ball to provide the best path for major life decisions. Stanford University lecturer Dave Evans has a better idea.
Welcome to the world of tame problems and wicked problems. Dave Evans, Stanford lecturer and former product manager at Apple, opens the door on an interesting question: not all problems are the same, so why use just one cookie-cutter method of thinking to fix them all? We’ll arrive at faster and smarter resolutions if we customize our approach.
Dave Evans joined the Stanford Design Program in 2007 where he teaches the popular Designing Your Life courses. Evans' passion is to help undergrads and grads apply the innovative principles of design thinking to the wicked problem of designing your life after Stanford. Dave obtained his BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering and returns to Stanford following 30+ years of executive leadership and management consulting in high technology. Evans product managed the first mouse and early laser-printing projects at Apple, was a co-founder of Electronic Arts, and has consulted to dozens of startups and major corporations.
