The instrument for change and innovation

Design Thinking is an increasingly important instrument for change and innovation. The challenges faced by organizations in the commercial and non-commercial sector are becoming increasingly complex. The conventional approach, whereby you first perform an extensive analysis and subsequently divide the problem into small chunks and start looking for that one correct solution, no longer works. Today's problems demand a new way of thinking and innovating.
