Design Thinking as a Strategy for Innovation (14 hrs)

Course Code: CS-DTAS-02

Businesses around the world are facing design challenges every single day, from customer feedback systems to daily schedules. Wherever they fall on the spectrum of scale – the challenges faced by employees are real, complex and varied. And as such, they require new perspectives, new tools and new approaches. Design Thinking is one of them.

Design Thinking is based on the assumption that everyone can create a more desirable future. That kind of optimism is well needed in the workplace. The design process is what puts Design Thinking into action. It is a structured approach to generating and developing ideas. It spurs innovation and solve complex problem. This is one of the key reasons why Apple is so successful and the reason that malnourishment rates of children in Vietnam is cut by half.

This course will enable participants to move from the conventional problem-solving practices to one that focuses on the human process that taps into attitudes we all have but overlooked. It relies on our abilities to be intuitive, to recognise patterns, to construct ideas that are emotionally meaningful as well as functional, and being able to express ourselves beyond words and symbols.
