The world is going through a revolution, a metamorphosis that creates a new paradigm. This talk is an exploratory journey into human-centered strategic innovation: Design Thinking and Innovation Games and how these approach and techniques can support your organization to build a roadmap for changing the world!
Design is used to create new products; Design Thinking is the way of thinking of designers applied to a broad spectrum of areas like customer experience, services, corporate strategy or even large-scale systems. Design Thinking and Agile share common founding principles and mutually reinforce each other. Design Thinking places empathy and collaboration at the heart of the innovation process and offers a roadmap to create true change in the world.
Innovation Games are a shortcut to innovation. We learn best and are more effective when we have fun and play and an increasing number of organizations have realized the enormous potential of game-based activities. Innovation Games can also be applied to a broad spectrum of areas like training, hiring, generating new ideas, making meetings more effective, generating feedback about a product or service, improving communication, avoiding common decision-making pitfalls, feature prioritization, vision sharing, SWOT analysis, strategy building, reflect and learn sessions and change management... The list goes on.
Organizations like Google, IBM or the United Nations use Design thinking and Games on a regular basis. Not a single month passes without a book, article, conference or training about these increasingly popular topics.
The growing success of Agile methods, which put a strong emphasis on people interactions, fun and build a creativity-friendly environment, have made Design thinking and Innovation Games even more popular.
