Design Thinking for Problem Solving


Programme Overview

Design Thinking is an iterative user-centric process that seeks to understand the user, challenge traditional assumptions and redefine problems to identify alternative strategies and solutions. Design Thinking provides a solution-based approach to solving problems through emotive lenses and sensitive feelers.

The significance of Design Thinking ensues from the technology disruption and digital transformation which has dramatically changed the way organizations evolve. Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Tesla, Alibaba, Samsung and GE, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach to propel their business forward, integrating creative problem solving, technology adoption and future-proofing. Design Thinking is a method developed by IDEO, a Global Consultancy based in Palo Alto, California. It is taught at leading universities around the world, including Stanford, Harvard and MIT.
