How much time do we spend ‘perfecting’ a report, or a proposal, or any of our outputs only to find we were answering the wrong question? Or that our solution did not gel with those meant to be served?
Design Thinking offers a new way of approaching problems that can help us to avoid these issues and ensure that our work is making a meaningful difference. Although often thought of as ‘product’ related, design thinking concepts can be used to aid better practice in education, research and consulting.
Tracy Hatton has just returned from an intensive 4-day boot camp at the Hasso Plattner School of Design at Stanford University. This program inspires new ways of understanding and tackling challenges with a core focus on ensuring a human centric approach to problem definition and solution ideation.
We are excited to see how some of the concepts might help in building more resilient organisations.
