Leading Disruptive Innovation


A Stanford University d.school Experience  

 
 

What is Leading Disruptive Innovation?

It’s a unique and immersive d.school experience that connects real-world organizations with select Stanford University graduate students. Over the course of 8 weeks (winter quarter (mid January - mid March), ‘d.leaders’ (trained Stanford students) will work closely with an organization to tackle an important business challenge with design thinking. By the conclusion each organization will launch an innovative product or service. Past partner organizations have solved challenges related to supply chain, customer service, audience, and product development, to name a few. 

 

If you're a Stanford student interested in d.leadership, get class-specific information here. This page contains information for partner orgs, not students.
