What is Design Thinking?
More than just a process and a set of tools and frameworks, Design Thinking is a mindset that simplifies complex problems by putting yourself in your users’ shoes. By conducting research, constant innovation and iteration till you come up with something completely new, its main goal is developing innovative and creative solutions for complex issues.
Integrating Design Thinking into business processes has a lot of benefits:
- increased ROI
- faster time-to-market
- improved work culture
- reduced development and testing related costs, to name a few.
Discover how Design Thinking can lead the conversation and influence outcomes within organisations, and how you can become the driver of that change with our online course.
