About the Programme/Event

Design Thinking has the power to transform nearly everything. It is a human-centered approach for finding and exploring innovative real solutions to complex problems. Design thinking combines the approaches of multi-disciplinary areas to solve a wide range of tough challenges. It can be used to develop products, services, and experiences as well as design and business strategy.

The innovation process is anchored towards understanding customer's needs, rapid prototyping, and generating creative ideas. It is a tool that may trigger inspiration and imaginations leading to innovative ideas that are responsive to the needs and issues of stakeholders.
