The workshop is designed to enable leaders to solve existing problems in creative ways using the Design Thinking Methodology. Conventional problem solving tools lead to run-of-the-mill solutions, hence in a fast-changing world, the problem solving methodology has to be different. Design Thinking, with its human-centric,
exploratory approach provides the answer. This workshop will introduce the participants to this approach.

  • Empathize strongly with users
