In a world that grows more complex and intensely connected each day, strategy and design thinking are no longer just the playground of design-focused companies. Organizations of every type and industry can (and must) use core design principles and applied creativity to develop innovative strategies that better connects them with their end users.

According to the IBM 2017 Global C-suite Study,

 

"Organizations of all sizes are prioritizing personalized customer experiences. The enterprises that most effectively deliver on this imperative are using design thinking to manage complexity, orchestrate across channels and truly understand their customers’ motivations." 

 

To this end, organizations have three critical tasks:

  1. Filling the funnel with a flow of creative ideas 

  2. Validating those ideas and prioritizing the best ones 

  3. Shepherding them from seed stage to market.

      Each of us is unique and has a different thinking style.           There is no one best style. Yet there are definite individual and organizational advantages when people know their thinking preferences and can use an organizational framework - Whole Brain Thinking-to capitalize on their own preferences and tap into those of others. 

      In the rush to solve problems and get them out of the way, too many business decisions are made with little or no real thought. People look at what facts they have in front of them and act without thinking things through. The Whole Brain approach to problem solving ensures that all aspects are considered, and the action will solve the real problem so the problem will not come back later. 

        Today's problems are often yesterday's decisions.

        In today's business environment there is often little time to think. We live in the 'here and now' . Everybody wants it 'now'.  This results in many decisions being made 'on the fly', without really thinking things through or without being able to consider all the facts. The result is often poor decision making. 

     This course recognizes the reality of today's business world and provides a structure that ensures problem solving and that decisions made are as good as they can be.
