About this Event

Design Thinking and Innovation Fundamentals

Build the core knowledge and skills needed to lead your organization through the Design Thinking process.

Organizations need a way to test new ideas and fast, kill ideas that don’t work and iterate on the ones that show more promise. In 2017, IDEO studied innovation in over 100+ companies and found that when teams iterate on five or more different solutions, they are 50% more likely to launch a product or service successfully.

The practice of continuous improvement and innovation is a cycle of experimentation, where teams rapidly test leap-of-faith assumptions and get evidence to support key business decisions, ultimately, helping to build consensus and collaborate more effectively with stakeholders across the organization.

A common challenge is having the skills and discipline to identify, test and track progress towards innovation and making the cycle of experimentation and learning a key practice inside any organization.

At adaptiveX, we’re helping organizations inspire change and lead through uncertainty by helping them acquire the skills they need to lead through innovation, intrapreneurship and design thinking.
