Strategy by Design: How Design Thinking Builds Opportunities

Featuring Tim Brown


Program Highlights

  • At its heart, design thinking is human-centered, empathetic.
  • Its process includes three stages for bringing ideas to life.
Successful innovations must be desirable to consumers, technically feasible, and viable from a business point of view. But how do you meet these requirements? Tim Brown advocates using the three stages of “design thinking”: inspiration, ideation, and implementation.
For inspiration, innovators must look at the world through the eyes and the ears of users, perhaps studying analogous situations or extreme users to spark a generative process. Ideation, the core of the process, involves prototyping and realistic testing. Implementation begins with storytelling to bring the idea into the world. If a narrative can be developed around an idea, it has the best chance of being understood and implemented.
Tim Brown has led strategic client relationships with such companies as Bank of America, Eli Lilly, DaimlerChrysler, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, and Steelcase. Tim earned his MA in design from the Royal College of Art in London.
