In March 2020, the IBM Design Education team faced an unprecedented challenge: completely transitioning its 8-week, in-person training program to a 100% virtual format for designers all across the globe. With IBM’s Enterprise Design Thinking at its core, they conceptualized an objectives-based, storied approach to their course, where every lesson, activity, and talk aligned to an underlying “hero’s journey”. The team successfully reinvented the program from the inside out, ensuring that designers who graduated still left with the same resiliency and thirst to take on the challenges of their product team work, and shape the future of IBM.
