Thursday, 19th July at 6.00pm at Boxworks, Patrick Street, Waterford.

Design thinking, is a human centered approach to problem solving. So! How can businesses benefit from a creative approach of problem solving in a business? Why did I choose this product? What value does it bring to me?

“Designing a business isn’t a one-time activity; it’s a continuous and evolving pursuit. Every component of a business can be tested, and all components must work elegantly together to successfully sustain your offer out in the world.” —Kerry O’Connor, IDEO Design Director

Today, new businesses can come from almost anywhere to serve nearly anyone, and a great business can change the world.

Over 92% of businesses now recognise that creative thinking is one of the critical elements of business design. Businesses need to move faster, network more and be open to a more collaborative approach. Within the next 5 years these skills are going to be the most important needed for any business in going forward into the future.
