What makes companies like Apple, Coco-Cola, Nike, and IBM so successful? What is their success ingredient that helps them dominate their sectors? The answer is… customer-centric innovation. You might have heard Steve Job’s quote: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. The design is how it works.” The super successful companies and businesses innovate and solve problems through design.

The future of innovation and problem-solving in work depends on the design thinkers with a holistic approach.

Design thinking arranges the tools and strategies that act as a catalyst to innovation through design. 

Got it? Yes? Perfect! 

No? Here’s another way to define Design Thinking: 

Florida State University defines design thinking as – “An analytic and creative process that engages a person in opportunities to experiment, create and prototype models, gather feedback, and redesign.” 

Businesses are employing design thinking to stay ahead of their competition to drive growth and profitability. 

Design thinking may seem like a difficult concept. Here is a simple breakdown of activities involved in design thinking: 

1. Know your users and their problems. 
2. Come up with innovative solutions by learning as much as possible about your customers.
3. Use creativity and critical thinking to come up with problem solution.
4. Using the human-centric solutions build a prototype that you can test with your customers. 

Design Thinking is increasingly getting popular. While I was researching I found a two-day workshop which is going to be organized in New Delhi, India. If you want to learn about design thinking here are some details about the workshop as listed on goeventz portal:
