First memory of Design Thinking
When I was a kid, I remember my father having a miniature putting green in the basement.  In school we had a project to invent something. I decided it would be a great idea if my Dad could take his putting green from his home office to his work office so I developed a putting green that packed up within a briefcase. The green rolled up and the hole was built into the briefcase so it would store the golf balls when you sunk your put. I thought I was so clever then, thinking he could hide this little bit of fun in a serious work briefcase. No one would ever know! I’m sure it was already on a daytime TV infomercial.
