To uncover innovation opportunities within an organisation it is important to look at problems and situations with a user-centric mindset; to think differently to search for novel alternatives to existing solutions and to embrace an experimental attitude to iteratively discover what is truly useful, feasible and viable. Such skills are at the heart of good design, and they actually can be learned and honed.
Working with experienced practitioners in the field, SMU Academy has developed a unique programme to help executives, managers and business leaders integrate Human Centered Design (HCD) with their business thinking for successful innovating.
Highly interactive and done through a blend of facilitated and e-learning, this course comprises 2 parts, both inter-connected but designed for participants at different phases of their design thinking journey.
Part 1 - Innovating Through Design Thinking: The Fundamentals (3-day course)
Part 2 - Innovating Through Design Thinking: The Advanced Applications (2-day course)
