Design thinking is a powerful problem-solving methodology that puts customers at the centre of the design process.

In this webinar, we will explore the principles of design thinking and how they can help transform your business.

Already developed and applied in the 1960s, this innovation management method really started to spread in the 1980s and is nowadays very successfully used in a wide variety of domains spanning from computer science and healthcare to support for the digital transformation in general. Success stories show that this methodology can help to develop products, software solutions, related services and processes. Our speakers will demonstrate why this is possible, thanks to such a pragmatic and rather simple approach, and how this method can be used to tackle a wide variety of subjects.

In this webinar, we will cover the core ingredients such as empathy, ideation, prototyping and testing and share best practise on why it is crucial to involve complementary people, abolish any form of hierarchy among them and focus on problem statements from the very start in order to quickly explore solutions and consent on a cost effective and simple implementation.
