The Johns Hopkins Sibley Innovation Hub is a team of strategists, designers and Lean practitioners who work to fulfill the Sibley mission–excellent care for every patient, every time–and vision–to be the role model for innovation in healthcare and wellness for all.


The Sibley version of innovation incorporates tech + design + lean.  To make the process simple, enjoyable and approachable, we've cut the jargon.  We call it Listen, Imagine, Do! 

The Sibley Innovation Hub uses human-centered design tools to find the perfect mixture of what is desirable, viable and feasible.  Design thinking is a process for understanding problems.  Rather than beginning with the end-goal in mind, we begin with the end-user.  To us, design thinking is about solving problems for our end-user, whoever that may be.   

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.
