MAHALO TO OUR SPONSOR HSBP along with its partners is proud to present: DEVELOPING THE ENTREPRENEURIAL MINDSET – DESIGN THINKING “Greater Creativity”, “Better Solutions, and Faster”, “Human Centered”. These are some of the words that describe Design Thinking, a five-step human-centered problem solving process made famous by David Kelley of IDEO (an award-winning global design firm) and Stanford University. It has been used by the world’s greatest innovators - Apple, Google, FedEx, GE, as well as Hawaii organizations such as Hawaiian Telcom, HECO, State Office of Information Management Technology, Department of Health, Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation, Department of Education, Oceanit, and many others. Our luncheon program will feature Ian Kitajima, a senior executive at Oceanit and co-founder/co-convener of Design Thinking Hawaii, a community of volunteers who are introducing Design Thinking into Hawaii’s schools, government, and companies. Oceanit is one of Hawaii's largest and most diversified privately‐held technology companies, with 150 scientists and engineers. Ian will share insights about Design Thinking and Oceanit’s experience. Why Oceanit adopted this new mindset? How do they do what they do? How can you apply Design Thinking to your business? Ian Kitajima is responsible for corporate development and venturing for Oceanit’s award winning innovations, products, and services. Since 2001, he continues to evolve and share Oceanit’s culture of innovation ‐ to create, fund, incubate, and transition new technologies to the marketplace, with a community mission to create a more prosperous Hawaii. He is an advisor or board member to several educational, government, and community organizations, such as PBS Hawaii, Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation, and UH Alumni Association. He is a product of Hawaii’s public school system, graduating from Castle High School, Windward Community College, and the University of Hawaii at Manoa (inducted into Phi Kappa Phi and Beta Gamma Sigma honor societies).
