Design Thinking - An effective approach to address the fundamental challenges of radical innovation.
New emerging technologies and interdisciplinary and cross-industry business models offer Swiss companies attractive opportunities for their future and growth. However, the world today is more volatile and complex than ever before. Product lifecycles are getting shorter, and customers want customised solutions for their everyday requirements. In order to meet these changing needs and demands and keep up with emerging technologies, adaptation of agile methodologies across teams and departments is needed.
Agile innovation development methods include Design Thinking and human-centred design. They help the generation and implementation of radical innovations. What do these terms actually mean and what lies behind these methods? Together with Swiss innovation agency Innosuisse, Spark Works has outlined the key elements of Design Thinking methods in this booklet in a clear and concise way, encouraging readers to see innovation as an agile process and to constantly improve the quality of their own ideas.
