In Graduate School, one of the buzzwords professors love to discuss is "Design Thinking." Design Thinking is an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user, challenge assumptions, and redefine problems to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding (Dam and Siang). Design Thinking enables a company to understand consumer needs to serve their audience better. For this project, I contacted different companies to learn how the organizations apply Design Thinking into their market offerings. I had the opportunity to talk with Aurora González to learn more about the mission and vision of La Manso .

4. What is the future of the company?
We try to enjoy the present and maximize it as much as possible. Putting ourselves too much in the future makes us not have a good time in the meantime!
