Design thinking is a creative process of developing business cases and prototypes for innovative solutions. Design thinking can be viewed as a process, a way of thinking and even a project. Whatever be the perspective, the objective of Design Thinking is to take a systematic approach to finding unique solutions to common problems. It helps the organizations to bring together market realities, a deep understanding of customer problems and business aspirations to create new products and services. It also supports organizations to imbibe a culture that encourages innovation.

Innovation is no longer a strategic choice of a few organizations. It is necessary for business continuity in almost every industry. Organizations are under constant pressure to innovate their business model, products and services not just to remain competitive but to remain relevant. To cope with the pace and quantum of change required, organizations are continuously looking for a structured process that can make Innovation programs predictable & effective. Organizations require consultants and facilitators who can run by their side hand-holding them through this process of Innovation and cultural change.
