“Design to overcome challenges”- event aimed at SMEs that can tackle a strategic design approach in their business models. Conference will take place at ISM University of Management and Economics (Room nr. 501 Arklių g. 18 LT-01129, Lietuva,Vilnius), 04 May 2016.
The purpose of the event is to inspire new reflections and give participants insights and design driven tools into how businesses and organisations can apply design thinking and design doing in their organisations.
“Design to Overcome Challenges” combine inspirational talks, reflection sessions and a hands-on insights workshop. A key focus for the workshop is to look into how design can systematically generate unique insights about users and stakeholders, and how design as a method can transform these insights into new, tangible solutions.
This reflection-based workshop is designed by the Danish Design Centre in collaboration with the leading Danish design company Attention Group. Both parties draw upon experiences and cases from a new collaboration programme “Plus”, that facilitates explorative design partnerships between Danish design facilitators and private companies around complex innovation challenges.
