Description

This is the second in our series of meetups for converger Moreland.


Why is Design Thinking Important


Design Thinking
…Google, Lego and Apple are doing it, governments at all levels are going wild for it, established businesses are engaging in it and start-ups are being launched using it, but what exactly is it and how can you use it - straight away.


Design Thinking is a problem solving methodology that helps people better understand the needs of their end-users, embrace their problems, and create solutions that are user-centric in design and innovative in implementation.

It’s about getting to the nitty-gritty of human experiences and using creative techniques to turn this insight into powerful ideas and solutions that people actually want to use and spend money on.

Contrary to its name, it doesn’t require you to be artistic or even able to draw, you just need to be willing to see the world through a new lens and your new super problem solving powers will follow.
