Design Thinking workshop at Ahoy! Berlin
Posted by Jennifer Meister on 31 Mar, 2016
Innovation is more and more becoming an essential component when it comes to becoming successful, personally as well as professionally. Therefore, different approaches and methods have been developed in the recent years.
One method that has increasingly been enforced in recent years is "Design Thinking". This is especially true for companies and start-ups that need to develop new products and services at a fast pace to the market.
Design Thinking aims to engage people and companies to think out-of-the-box and thus be ready to develop innovative products or solve problems using a creative framework.
Even though it is an exciting tool that offers new opportunities, many people are not quite sure about how exactly it works and what can be achieved with it.
Göran Hielscher is Design Thinking Coach and has given workshops for many years. He helps companies to implement Design Thinking in their culture or solve current problems together with them.
In a one-hour mini workshop Göran will introduce the method to the audience, using the recent networking scenario to see what is possible, when many brains are linked together. The participants can practise what they have learned and directly apply it to their professional or private environment.
"Design Thinking for Networking”
UNDERSTAND - How can we best get to know each other on start-up events?
OBSERVE - Speed user research
POINT OF VIEW - Define target group
IDEATE - Hardcore brainstorming
PROTOTYPE - Speed implementation
TEST - Live test in the event space
