Developing a Sustainable Culture of Innovation
Innovation is more than just a brainstorm or a lesson in creative thinking. Innovation is about understanding your users͛ needs and problems both now and in the future, and translating this knowledge into a solution that will add value to their lives and your organisation.
Fortunately, the act of innovating is a process that can be learnt by anybody and embedded into every organisation.

Design Thinking (also known as human-centred design) allows professionals from every industry to embrace problems and create solutions that are user-centric in design and effective in implementation. It encourages you to dig deeper, ask the difficult questions, and go beyond the obvious to understand the real challenge to be solved. It is an approach that always puts the user at the centre, and uses tactics such as empathy, rapid ideation, low fidelity prototyping and testing to develop and implement ideas that create impact.
It doesn't matter whether you want to develop a new product, service or customer experience, or do something less tangible like improve systems, processes or your workplace culture. If you have problems to solve, then Design Thinking is the process you need.
