    Topic: Using Design Thinking to Transform Perception

    Design Thinking is a human-centered approach to innovative problem solving that integrates the needs of people and the possibilities of technology. It can help change your perception within your organization on how you address problems while working in a deep anthropologic state with your customers. Design Thinking can move you away from checklist and analytical styles of thinking and immerse and engage with your customers to gain a deep understanding of their needs.

    In this presentation, Tim will give a real-world example of how changing your perception can truly change the world. By looking at low cost options for long term solutions, Design Thinking unleashes the creative mindset to converge on the right solution. I go over the tenets of Design Thinking, the "By Design" program at TE, and some lessons learned in order for the audience to take away for their own organizations. The goal is to provide an overview of Design Thinking and to demonstrate that it's really about good business analysis skills. 

    Learning Objectives:

    • To understand the main (high level) tenets of Design Thinking
    • To understand how to change your perception using Design Thinking techniques
