About the course

In today’s fast moving and competitive world, it is essential for organisation to be equipped with the mindset and toolset to continuously innovate.

This course will introduce to participants a Human Centre Design (Design Thinking) innovation framework that embraces ‘User centred innovation’, ‘Design Thinking’, ‘Ethnographic Research’, and ‘Customer Experience Design’. These are some of the concepts that form the basis of the innovation. This course has been designed to create an awareness and expose participants to the skills needed for:

  • Engaging users to understand their needs
  • Identifying and communicating opportunities for improvement
  • Validating the desirability of new products/process/services early in the development

This high energy, fun, one-day workshop provides teams with an overview of innovation & service design, an understanding of where they can contribute and how they can contribute, and sets them on the journey to being more innovative in delivering their services.

Due to its flexible nature, the course can be contextualised for individual organisations, sectors or focused on specific technologies. For example, we have run the innovation bootcamp for Financial Services, Healthcare and Government as well as for specific technologies.

This course is part of the Digital Innovation & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.
