|“Business people don’t need to understand designers better. They need to become designers.”|
- Roger Martin, former Dean, Rotman School of Management
|Design thinking is a human-centred approach that organisations can apply to understand their customers and innovate their offerings. It has given many organisations new hope, a way to unearth fresh insights about their users and differentiate themselves from their competitors.|

In this condensed session, you will get to quickly experience what a design process feels like. We will also share how it can help you better work on the issues that you have been working on.
