#PetrosainsAfterHours: Introduction to Design Thinking as a Strategy for Innovation

Design Thinking (DT) is a highly recognized, proven and widely-used method that is applied across businesses, disciplines and fields to solve complex problems. The five-process of DT relies on its human-centric approach to innovate, incorporating key elements which harnesses on multidisciplinary teams, flexible environments and usage of the creative process. Experiencing DT is a combination of learning the methodology, behavioural and mind-set change, and is best learned by being hands-on and working on a real-world project. Embracement of DT in organisations disrupt silo-thinking culture, promotes multi-disciplinary collaboration and fosters pro-active teamwork as a working culture.

DT is recognized by the Asian Banking School (ABS) as their certified soft skills provider. Adopting DT will allow you to actively create opportunities to innovate, accelerate growth and development, and unlock creative potential.
