What is Design Thinking?

Design Thinking helps you to improve people’s lives by holistically examining the needs of communities or individuals, and works in collaboration to improve existing products and services, or create high-value new ones. This requires different mindsets and a truly human-centred focus. Anyone can do it and it is fun!

Design Dialogue: The Human Side Of Driving Transformation In Asia (4/4)

Benötigt einen Veranstaltungsort

This series explores how we might combine Design and an Agile way of working in Hong Kong to drive transformation in Asia with a Human-Centric view. This is an open conversation about local issues, where everyone will have the chance to contribute, listen, and be heard. Transformations are good, but they often don’t feel great. A transformation helps a company adapt, be more innovate and cope with the changing market and customer pressure. However, the process of moving from one way of working to another is painful and often, the ultimate promise of the transformation is either forced, abandoned or compromised because it hasn’t addressed or considered the human and culture we operate in. Together, in this four-part series, we will explore understand the latent assumptions and cultural challenges that we face and protoype solutions that are culturally relevant and will unlock human potential, particularly in Asia. EXPLORE | Part 1: August 22 (DONE) DEFINE | Part 2: 3 September (DONE) HACK | Part 3: 17 September (DONE) EVOLVE | Part 4: 2 October Join us for the final event in a 4-part series where we explore the current drivers of innovation in HK.
