In recent years, a number of companies, including Apple, Google and SAP, have adopted Design Thinking (DT), service design, or human-centered design to gain a competitive edge. There is much more to this approach than “simply” prototyping customer-centered solutions and transforming the customer-designer relationship. So, what is design thinking exactly? And how is it revolutionizing global market leaders, both internally and externally?
This course gets to the heart of why the DT approach to innovation can be a critical success factor. To this end, we will investigate the three stages of transformation – people, process, and space.
Participants will be able to use real prototypes to tackle their own challenges and test these on customers. You will learn how DT as the most effective innovation approach can transform corporate culture and innovation processes.
