Design Thinking and the Art of Stillness
Parameswaran Venkataraman Chief Design Officer at Fractal Analytics, Ex Design Director at IDEO, India
In conversation with Navyug Mohnot, CEO of QAI and Founder of QGLUE
How do you continue to reinvent yourself and stay relevant with times? How do you make it work with people that are different from you? The answer is design thinking. Design is a way of falling in love with the world and everything around it. The idea of reflection, mindfulness, and the art of stillness can make you love what you’re creating, and the people you’re creating it for, with a high level of empathy. And Param uses this incredible art to become a better design thinker. Join us as Param shares his experience of applying design thinking for personal transformation.
Consulting firms must adopt design thinking
approaches and co-innovate
Apa Hospodková
Senior Facilitator and Experience Designer at EY wavespace
In consultancies, user-centricity is more important than ever before. It’s no longer about having industry knowledge or being able to leverage what competitors are doing. It’s about understanding the client’s uniqueness. Consultancies can only achieve this by breaking free from silo thinking and begin co-creating together. Join us as we explore questions every consulting agency wants to know – how do you get clients to engage with you, open up to new approaches, and find the best approaches that cater to the entire-cycle of innovation?
Organizations need committed
Leaders to scale innovation
Lakshman Pachineela Seshadri, Adjunct Professor at IIM Bangalore and
Teaching Team Member at Hasso Plattner Institute at D-school Germany
Innovation must happen and it has to be human centric. If organizations are looking to scale design thinking initiatives for innovation, it’s important for the leadership to really walk the walk and believe in the idea, and not just fund the initiative to be truly effective. Teams must realize that innovation is a marathon, not a sprint. One cannot expect the magic to happen in a day, commitment is a deal breaker. Join us as we move past just talking about design thinking, to implementing it, scaling it and crunching up the numbers.
Positive creative change can unlock innovative potential
Sharif Maghraby, Lead Innovation Coach (ACC) Winnovate, UAE
In conversation with Navyug Mohnot, CEO of QAI and Founder of QGLUE
At the very core of innovation, is the idea of “how do we enable people and give them the creative confidence to innovate”. Positive psychology is the science of wellbeing, and accepting the fact that human beings need connection, relationships, meaning, positive emotions and a sense of achievement. How might we develop frameworks that allow people to consciously or intentionally, create these fields of, of positive emotion and flourish? We chat with Sharif about designing a culture that basically champions this concept of wellbeing.
Organizations must address cultural
biases to facilitate growth
Fabian Behnke, Design Thinking & Human Centered Innovation Consultant,
Coach, Lecturer & Speaker
A “Copy-Paste” approach might not work when applying design thinking and innovation methods from the West to countries in the East. Rather, organizations must bring in cultural outsiders to anticipate much more and pinpoint challenges that would be difficult to address from within an organization, like a healing process. This helps organizations say more – not just in terms of KPIs, but in terms of the culture and connections that they have and the numerous ways in which that they can help facilitate that growth. We dive deep into Fabian’s extensive culture specific experiences of working with clients across the globe, and how this helped evolve his practices as a design thinker.
