Design Thinking for Innovation (Workshops & Team Facilitation)

When design principles are applied to strategy and innovation the success rate for innovation dramatically improves. You don’t have to be a designer to think like one. While learning to be a good designer takes years, you can think like a designer and design the way you lead, manage, create and innovate. A design mindset is not problem-focused, it’s solution focused and action oriented towards creating a preferred future. Design thinking draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, and systemic reasoning, to explore possibilities of what could be—and to create desired outcomes that benefit the end user (the customer).
