Since we will host a Pre-Event on this topic I feel like it's about time to shortly tell you what this is all about! Creative Thinking or Human-centered Design is applied in order to develop sollutions which are tailored to the needs of the users. This doesn't have to be a pre defined process or method but rather an approach to solving problem which is based on three key basic principles. Those principles are Inspiration, Ideation & Implementation another key factor of Human-centred Design is some a feedback mechanism to ensure that the developed solutions are really what the users are waiting for and willing to use. If this sounds interesting to you I suggest you check out this short video & sign up for our Pre-Event on the 5. of April in Bremen.
