Why Design Thinking?
"Design is too important to be left to designers"To navigate the complexities of advancing technology and increased competition, we need to become more agile and adopt an innovation culture. Design Thinking drives us to look through the eyes of our customers. It provides the connection between creativity and innovation. It gives us a solution-based approach to solving problems. Increasingly being adopted by some of the most successful businesses in the world, Design Thinking opens up new ways of approaching complex problems, enabling companies to serve the needs of users today and in the future.

“As a leader of change projects, I realised it was a powerful way to get people engaged in change” 
Tara Yamashita, VP Group Strategy, BAE Systems
“ Holistically the best immersive training course I’ve attended yet – the thought that went into designing it was evident everywhere. High calibre facilitators and speakers, great practical toolkit and case study to apply them to, meant everyone went away from the course energised and overflowing with ideas to practically implement the Design Thinking principles. I can’t recommend enough! "
