Design Innovation Day

21st March 2019

Design Innovation is not just about coming up with new ideas and products – it is about seeing the world as it could be. It helps us discover market opportunities, experiment to validate concepts and mitigate risk, and deliver value to all stakeholders to achieve growth and differentiation.

Target Audience: VP/Director level Product & Technology Leaders, Product Managers and Designers.

The program offers various techniques for applying human-centered design process to real-world challenges by exploring the world around you. You’ll learn how to engage with end users, effectively frame problems hypothesis, identify potential solutions, and test your assumptions rapidly to learn what works (and doesn’t). You would walk with new ideas on how to bring design innovation into your organization.
