Six Thinking Hats

Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer's toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”
— Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO

Thinking like a designer can transform the way organizations develop products, services, processes, and strategy. This approach, which IDEO calls design thinking, brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. It also allows people who aren't trained as designers to use creative tools to address a vast range of challenges.

Design thinking is a strategic approach that prioritizes customer needs above all else, providing organizations with a framework for radical customer orientation. This customer orientation is why design thinking is so important to marketers. That means design thinking is just as likely to influence marketing and branding as it is to influence market innovation or product differentiation. Marketing can learn a lot from design thinking– how to be agile, better, faster and more effective.

Once in a while I attend training program in our organisation that is so encouraging that it makes time away from my core job worth while. It should have focus group session to solve the real problem caused by organisation.

Well structured cources. What was most interesting was the real life cause studies that Dr. Sunil related to different concepts. Most courses step at teaching new tools. However this one facilated stakeholder management which makes it very practical.
