Design Thinking and Beyond

Design Thinking has been a buzz word for quite some time. How have companies actually been applying it?


In this webinar recording you hear case presentations on what an innovative design thinking culture means in practice and how to implement it into your organization. Finally, learn about Design Fiction, a future-making practice which, like Design Thinking, has much to offer businesses. Will this be your driver of long term innovation and resilience against the disruptive future unknowns facing your company?

Nuria Solsona, Academic Program Director ESADE Business School, Design Thinking for Business Innovation program, will be moderating the discussion.
