Why is Design Thinking the world’s number one innovation method?
Too many projects fail because of faulty assumptions made up front. Design Thinking ensures the creation of a product or service that is not only technically feasible, but also desirable and profitable.
Design Thinking is a discipline that encourages empathy with the user of the product or service – a process called human centred design. Design Thinking harnesses rapid prototyping and iteration.
Design Thinking is extremely flexible. This workshop has helped teams to identify opportunities in areas as wide ranging as company growth, inventing new products to launch on Kickstarter, app development and tackling environmental issues.
