Design Thinking Essentials

Provided by: Australian Institute of Management

‘Disrupt or be disrupted’ is a common catchphrase for business in the 21st century. To succeed in today’s rapidly changing business environment, innovation is critical to compete in almost every industry. Design Thinking enables you to combine the traditional internal focus on your organisation’s linear objectives and business metrics with an outward creative focus that challenges assumptions and redefines problems to deliver better business outcomes.

The Design Thinking Essentials virtual learning series explores two perspectives, using it as a precise methodology or using it as a mindset and philosophy, either of which can help organisations understand and solve business issues, leverage growing trends and opportunities, and establish and maintain collaboration and engagement with key stakeholders.

The Design Thinking Essentials virtual class is intended for individuals whose role involves analysing their organisation’s opportunities for improvement and creating highly valuable and innovative solutions that drive organisational success.
