design thinking 

+

WHAT’S WITH THE “+ ” SIGN?
The practice of design thinking is a systematic approach to innovation: aka the creation of new value. It’s only one of the approaches I use to help organizations unlock their creative courage and develop an associative and experimental mindset that instills a culture of innovation.

While my work begins with the principles of design thinking –  primarily the ability to empathize with all stakeholders –  I have found that being able to draw upon tools and methods from agile and lean, systems thinking, the arts, anthropology and psychology, education and parenting, business strategy, sustainable management, and health and wellness helps move design thinking to design doing. Design doing turns ideas into tangible and relevant innovations. My role as a designer, facilitator and strategist is to orchestrate and enable this process of innovation, however it is needed.

5P’s of innovation

Because checklists can be more than clickbait. 

5Ps can be applied to problems with creating new value in products and services, infrastructure, and business models.
