Design Thinking for Adaptive Strategy

CXOs

In volatile business environments, strategy is no longer about predicting market trends and stocking up products and offering services to cater to those predicted market needs. In such a fast-paced environment, strategy is about setting up delivery systems (whether products or services) which are flexible and agile, which can sense the dynamic market needs and respond quickly by re-organizing themselves. Our workshop 'Design Thinking for Adaptive Strategy' introduces the concepts of Adaptive Enterprise and Design Driven Innovation Strategy for senior leadership.

When business problems are well defined, project management is all about setting up processes, rigorous planning and monitored execution. With complex and ill-defined problems, however, the demands from project management change. In today's economy where customer expectations and business trends change rapidly, project managers have to manage increasing amount of ambiguity and unknown factors in their role. Our workshop 'Design Thinking for Innovation Management' simulates this dynamic real-world environment where they learn to sense the market pulse and respond quickly and appropriately.

Snippets from one of our past workshop

  • A PSU attending such workshop is a one off - I am so glad I was a part of this different experience. I have extracted two fold benefit from the workshop:
    1) I have applied it on some current problems of Western Railways and realized tremendous results
    2) I have transformed my team of clerks to team of Design Thinkers
