26.03.19 / Why It’s Time To Capacitate Your Team In Design Thinking

The speed in which technology is improving and disrupting reality has never been greater. Because of it, companies across the world aren’t simply competing with one another anymore; they are also struggling to keep up with the tech changes to remain relevant. With social values constantly changing, organisations that aren’t willing to innovate and break their old moulds will most likely die out.

What We Know For Sure:

  • Technology is breaking the paradigms in the way people consume and interact with brands and companies
  • There is no such thing as “sector” competition anymore – companies are all at a competition, regardless of their industry
  • Environmental and social problems are becoming more complex by the day
  • Political change, diversity, equality and representativity are topics companies can no longer ignore


How Can Design Thinking Help?

With all that we listed above, to say companies can feel the instability of their environments is an understatement. Although some companies remain above water, innovation is the thing that will be able to make companies remain relevant, current and desired by costumers in our evolving society.

Design Thinking is an approach that will help your team resolve challenges based on the most important point of view, your costumer’s. It is a mindset that creates a baseline for innovation in a practical and human-centred way by allowing professionals to solve complex problems by making use of three core values – empathy, collaboration and experimentation.

How To Capacitate Your Team?

There are many ways in which you can capacitate your team in Design Thinking – a tool that has the power to help creativity and, therefore, innovation to become “best practices” within an organisation.
