“Innovation” is what business, finance and market analysts crave as it represents the hope of finding the key to solve their future problems. But there is no magic formula to predict if what is coming next will be the next big thing. However today, any kind of business and organization can benefit from the designers’ way of thinking and working which leads to transformation, evolution and innovation, to new forms of living and to new ways of managing business. What are the principles behind the thinking process of conceiving new realities, expressing the introduction of design culture and its methods into fields such as business innovation? The Innovation Movement as it is postulated and practiced today has both a bright and a dark side that will be explored during the session. The webinar will look at breaking it down to reveal the most useful aspects of its DNA and whether it will work for your vision, your groups, your business and your goals.
