Product Discovery Using Design Thinking

Design Thinking has been a revolutionary approach to build products that help solve users 'REAL' problem. It introduces a whole new approach of thinking towards the needs and problems of users. It challenges a designer's thinking and assumptions made about users behaviour in using a product or service. It is not about designing just another jazzy user interface but an approach to create end user experience that makes them happy and productive using your products and services. 

Thinking about design thinking, while it is mostly endorsed by product development companies, it is a concept which can be applied just anywhere, be it schools, government offices/schemes, social enterprises, public utility services, organization structure, anything and everything that deals with a common person. It is not just another new entrant in the software world, but its a blank and vast canvas that can be used in any difficult situation that needs user-centric solution.

    Pooja,

    Thanks for the proposal.

    Have you conducted this workshop elsewhere earlier? 

    What would the audience take away, to apply what they learn here in their context?

    Based on the description, this seems to cover the basic concepts and techniques. Why is this classified as intermediate? are there any pre-reqs for the participants?
