Design Intervention for Business Success (DIBS)
What is it that companies as diverse as Google, PepsiCo, Uber, Airbnb, Amazon, Apple, Proctor & Gamble, IBM and Dyson have in common, apart from being large corporations, of course? In two simple words, Design Thinking! Each of these companies has adopted Design Thinking, which in turn has impacted their businesses and provided a competitive edge.
Have you ever stopped to think about how the world around us is defined by design?
The machines we use, the iOS updates that Apple announces, or even something as commonplace as the tomato ketchup squeezy bottle you use for your plate of fries…sound familiar, don’t they?
They are all a part of a design eco-system!
Design is everywhere around us, it’s just that we need to open our minds to it!
Design as is commonly understood, involves ‘making things look pretty and aesthetic’. But, this is less than half of the narrative!
DESIGN IS A HUMAN-CENTRIC PROCESS OF FINDING SOLUTIONS FOR PROBLEMS FROM A USER’S PERSPECTIVE.
Thinking creatively like a designer
Alter organisational systems, processes, strategies and products, to enhance consumer experiences
Fuel company growth by addressing specific pain points or needs.
Businesses and Design Thinking
Think of some of the world’s largest companies, Pepsi and Google for example… the secret to their market dominance lies in Design Thinking! Billion-dollar companies such as Amazon, Uber and Airbnb have arrived at their brands’ promises using Design Thinking. It’s even prompted a home-grown company like ID Fresh Food, to enhance their products with innovative features for better user experiences.
Now, more than ever before, Design Thinking has evolved into a powerful, problem-solving tool not just for designers, but for large and small businesses alike, across the world. It lets you solve problems and arrive at solutions through a journey of discovering, strategizing and implementing!
