Mastering Design Thinking in Organizations

via openHPI


As part of this course, experienced DT practitioners were invited to share success stories of the different implementation strategies their organizations adopted when implementing design thinking. Besides that, they shared with us the critical cultural and organizational changes that were necessary to make that happen, such as, how to EMPOWER employees to use DT, how to ENACT DT in different industries, and how you can PROVE that DT works. Finally, the practice will then be complemented with academic talks concerning the most recent theoretical developments in the area of design thinking and innovation research.

If you are curious to know about how organizations are leading through design and their paths to achieve sustainable innovation, enroll for this course. We will guide you throughout this fascinating journey, which is promoting organizational change through design!
