Overview

 

How Thinking Like a Designer Can Solve Business Challenges

Leaders are always wondering what steps they need to take in their organization, department or business unit to actually deliver innovation.

The essence of this challenge is turning abstract ideas into tangible applications that can drive business growth.

This Webcast offers insight into “design thinking” that provides a different way to analyze and solve complex growth challenges. What you’ll discover is a systematic approach to problem solving built upon four questions: What is? What if? What wows? What works?

What You Will Learn

 

For 60 minutes you’ll discover how to innovate quickly for business growth when you have to create new products or implement projects. This includes tips on the mindset, techniques, and vocabulary of design thinking, including:

  • Telling a human-centered story to arouse passions
  • Making the words "by when?" part of every conversation
  • Agreeing on a fast decision-making model: who decides and when do they decide, using what criteria?
  • Sharing your ideas when they are just "good enough" and have the courage to look foolish
  • Letting others validate your ideas
  • Speaking the truth about failures and what was learned

Join us as we unlock the mysterious connection between design and growth, exploring how to exploit design's exciting potential. While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
