The Design Thinking Process for Innovation
A Toolkit for Leading Creative Conversations about Park and Program Relevance
The Center for Park Management, in partnership with the global design and innovation firm IDEO, has designed this toolkit to support the National Park Service and its partners—to better connect all Americans to the Park System. As the National Park Service enters its second century, there is no better time to try new ideas, experiment with untested models, and build a learning community that is dedicated to sharing creative and innovative approaches.Download the Toolkit
