How can we better prepare for the future?
Given the rise of challenges at work, organizations would need a creative workforce who can foster innovation, think out of box, and develop solutions that improve business processes and employee engagement. The use of human- centric Design Thinking would allow for an adaptive and flexible approach to align closely with organizations goals. Maryam works with leadership teams of various organizations across multiple industries and sectors and help them to apply the concept of design thinking at work.
Design Thinking is a creative approach to problem solving that minimizes the risk and uncertainty of innovation by engaging the end user through a series of prototypes to learn, test and refine concepts; it relies on end users insights gained from real-world experiments.
