About this event

We are happy to warm up the winters with a Design-Thinking workshop. The workshop would be taken by Design Researchers (the profiles are given below).

You would be wondering why we have named the workshop as 'Demystifying Design-Thinking'?  Please read on...

We think that Design-Thinking has been made a fancy term devoid of its fundamental principles.

Let us understand...

Design-Thinking is a method to attack "spaghetti-like" problems. 

Here are we, our world & its future:

  • Population, Pollution,
  • Automatic-Vehicles, 
  • Artificial-Intelligence, 
  • Climate-Change, Digital-Divide...

...and, that is too complex. The issues are interconnected and, entangled, like spaghetti. Few of the questions which come are:

  1. How can the businesses sustain in such a scenario?
  2. Can they see opportunities in challenges?
  3. Can they tame an unpredictable future?

In simpler terms, the questions we need to ask are:

  1. Who is going to use my product/service? Who is this person? What does he do? Where does he live? What does he think? What are his likes and dislikes? 
  2. Is it easy to make that 'something good'? Can we make something that can withstand the changing nature of society & culture, laws and policy and rapidly evolving technology-landscape (...our world is too complex)
  3. What does he need? Can he specify clearly? Or, would (s)he say, "yes, yes, exactly like this" when we show him something good?

That means:

  1. What are the products or services can we design for rural women who are becoming part of the workforce?
  2. Can we see the legal issues that automatic cars may face?
  3. Can we think beyond air-purifiers and see what makes people not work from home.

This is what the workshop will focus upon.

We rest our case here and see you on 28th December.
