Innovative Thinking and Design Thinking
'Design thinking' has a human-centered core. It encourages organizations to focus on the people, which leads to better products, services, and internal processes.
In employing design thinking, you’re pulling together what’s desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. It also allows those who aren't trained as designers to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges. The process starts with taking action and understanding the right questions. It’s about embracing simple mindset shifts and tackling problems from a new direction.
A perfect course for all those young adults who want to play a leadership role in the future!
