This PDW brings together scholars and practitioners working in creativity, design thinking and strategy to explore, debate, and illustrate the ways in which design thinking is being used as a creative process to positively impact people as the beneficiaries of projects. The PDW is the first of a series of PDWs to be proposed at AOM over the next three years seeking to bring the design thinking and positive organizational scholarship communities together to advance knowledge, theorizing and research on how design thinking can impact projects to improve society and have a positive and sustainable impact on people, planet and profit. The workshop will be an interactive, design thinking led session and will produce micro- projects to advance the ‘positive design’ cause within the academy. This session will also be supported by the Project Management Institute and will seek to broaden and build networks to advance creative approaches to project design with a focus on the beneficiaries.
