BarCamp “Emerging Innovation: an exploratory journey into Design Thinking and why it matters!”
[SAVE THE DATE] Wednesday, April 6 at 7 pm
Design Thinking can be used to design products, new customer experience or corporate strategy and large scale systems. Like Agile, adopting a Design Thinking approach is not a process but a change of mindset. For large organizations, it often means radical cultural change. Embracing the customer perspective as a starting point to re-invent a strategy or becoming comfortable dealing with ambiguity is a slow but highly rewarding learning process.
Design Thinking is a making-based approach to solving problems creatively. It fosters radical collaboration and focuses on human values. If you want to understand more about Design Thinking and hear how organizations like Uber, Metlife or AirBnB use it to become and remain innovative, attend this synthetic lecture about Design Thinking key concepts and implementation principles.
