The course will introduce students to the concepts and applications of Design Thinking. It is a human-centered, multidisciplinary approach to help individuals, teams, and organizations innovate and grow. We will examine the Design Thinking process that can be applied to the development of both new products and new services, as well as the improvement of existing ones. Students will learn the basics of innovation and how Design Thinking could be applied as a powerful tool to uncover opportunities for new products/services, not only from the target customers but also from related stakeholders such as suppliers, manufacturers, maintenance, after-sales, etc. Students will learn to evaluate and approach new product/service development from a systemic and holistic view.
