Design thinking training.

A human-centered and creative problem-solving approach to crafting products and services that customers will love.

About

Design thinking training for corporations (B2B/B2C).

The design thinking process was introduced by IDEO and perfected by research at Stanford. This training is user-driven innovation at its best, perfect for companies that want to discover hidden opportunities in a specific market segment. 

Why is design thinking so important today? Over 40% of startups fail because there is no market need for what they offer. That’s why the development of every new product or service must start with a deep understanding of your customers.

“The Board of Innovation team invested lots of effort to understand the Chinese culture and our business background to come up with a tailor-made process.”
