What is the best way to think through challenging problems, recognize areas for innovation, generate market opportunities, and enrich customer value? Design thinking is a creative problem-solving methodology that helps transform complex problems into valuable opportunities by putting the customers’ needs first. By being people-centric, design thinking refocuses our efforts on the customer (internal or external) and offers enormous potential for innovation and competitive advantage in our solutions.

In this hands-on session you’ll discover:

- The fundamentals of the design thinking methodology
- Ways to bring greater collaboration among business, technology, and design teams
- Tactical exercises that you can apply to your client projects to get to the root of their challenges to help craft the right solutions to the right problems
- Practical methods to integrate design thinking activities into the full development life-cycle

At the end of the session you'll get a practical playbook to help you apply design thinking at scale in your own organizations.
