Gain a Competitive Edge with Design Thinking

November 2, 2021

Gain a Competitive Edge with Design Thinking

Many people in business tend to be taught a top-down mindset: You start with market research, secondary market research, and market size evaluation, and then you drill into the opportunity. In contrast, design thinking embraces a bottom-up approach – you start with human beings and figure out where opportunity exists by turning the lens completely around. 

Join us for this webinar, led by Professor David Schonthal from Kellogg School of Management, to learn how design thinking gives you the power to take what you know intuitively and empathetically, and use it to drive innovation, create opportunity, and be a more inspirational leader. 

In addition, you will:

• Discover why design-led companies outperform their more traditional counterparts by a factor of two to one

• Prepare to navigate and overcome common stumbling blocks on the road to innovation

• Learn key methodologies and best practices that you can apply in your own line of work
