DESIGN THINKING FOR STRATEGIC INNOVATION

A WORKSHOP WHICH CHANGES THE WAY YOU THINK

A 1-day workshop | Mumbai | July 30, 2017

Gallopper presents, once again, a 1-day workshop on Innovation in the face of change, using principles of Design Thinking, in association with Ideactio (Singapore) Limited seats (20); please book early to avoid disappointment. Book here.

Learn how to change the way you look at things; learn how to think differently. Learn how to use the principles of design thinking for strategic innovation.

How do you remain innovative, as an individual, as an organization and as a society, when the world around is changing faster and faster? The physical and digital worlds have merged, creating a new definition of space. The future is here; it is the future-present. You work and play from your bedroom to the boardroom. There is no work-life balance, but work-life integration. In today’s digitally aided lives, what you see is not always what it seems. Change is but inevitable. But humans resist change, and we often try to tackle that as a people problem. What if it is not a people problem, but a situation problem? What appears as resistance to change, may be a lack of clarity.

In this workshop, learn how to get clarity in the midst of disruptive change around us. Then, how do you discover innovative ways to stay on top. The workshop follows a “learn by doing” methodology and is replete with multiple exercises, which allow participants to “think with their hands”. This ensures that the learning is easy and remains ingrained.

WHEN YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS, THE THINGS YOU LOOK AT CHANGE.

  • Do you feel at times that people do not understand you and wonder what to do about it?
  • Are you responsible for managing people, who at times. ‘just don’t get it’?
  • Do you feel the world around you is changing too fast to cope with?
  • Do you often wish to turn your innovative ideas into reality?

Learn how to change the way you look at things; learn how to think differently. Learn how to use the principles of design thinking for strategic innovation.
