Design Innovation, including the topical areas of Design Thinking, Business Design, Organizational Design, Design Engineering and Systems Thinking, focuses on the development of key mindsets and skillsets for professionals interested in the Innovation Economy, society, and community.
Design may be the single most important factor that will distinguish those that can be replaced by machines from those that are fundamental to a healthy, developed and fair society.
Our design process is user centered and begins with execution of specific design methods. These methods guide activities that lead to desired outcomes. The selection of methods and transition between specific methods is governed by a process or approach. Our 4D process provides an order of action while allowing for sprints, scrums and customization in the overall process. Finally, a culture of design is grown organizationally through ubiquitous mindsets and ‘principles.’ These principles are cherished and adopted into our design community via execution of the methods and approach.
