Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
Design Thinking and Innovation introduces a series of tools that will enable you to create, test, refine, package and deliver an opportunity. These skills are important for all individuals and organisations. In the corporate world, these skills are considered vital irrespective of your foundation discipline. In the not for profit sector, one of the most competitive markets in the world, these skills will enable you to be able to deliver their important and often essential services. In a family business, it is the importance of sustainable growth, building on the founder’s legacy and ensuring the traditions of the business are maintained. The social enterprise is a new term, but an old concept - how do you effectively and powerfully deliver strong economic and social dividends without compromising either? This paper will reveal the “how”. As an aspiring entrepreneur, you may be seeking the skills, design thinking and the tools of innovation to achieve your personal dream, to start an enterprise. Your thinking, agility and enterprising behaviour will be tested in this fast paced paper. It is hoped you can understand and solve a simple yet powerful equation; an equation that will be examined and tested: Creativity + Innovation = Entrepreneurship.

This paper will be facilitated with face-to-face sessions.

You will be introduced to the Design Thinking (DT) concepts, and a facilitator will engage with you in each phase of the DT process. When you enter the paper, you will need to, as a group, have a clear idea as to what product/service you want to engage with as entrepreneurs. The end result is a presentation of your solution, which will then be taken to the next paper where you will be seeking investment.

You will have to maintain your own reflective journal and update your learning as you engage with each phase of the DT process.
