Whether at work, or at home, we are problem-solver beings. In most cases we overcome the familiar obstacles using our analytical thinking, but sometimes we face a barrier that demand unconventional and creative solutions. The main dilemma however, is that innovative ideas are in short supply when they are needed desperately, and show up when least expected. During this webinar, you are introduced to the human-centered and innovative problem solving methodology, AKA “Design Thinking”, which has helped many companies such as IBM, Google, Pepsi co., and Nike to innovate repeatedly and not just randomly. The Design Thinking methodology puts the human needs at core and taps into our creative thinking to tackle the apparent unsolvable problems!
