Workshop: Design Thinking in a nutshell


Thursday 16:00 17:30


How can we deal with uncertainty, complexity and constant change? Existing principles and practices need to be reconsidered. New ways and approaches are required. Design Thinking offers a way to tackle those challenges. But what can we learn from designer? In order to understand complex facts, designer look at these from different angles. A change in the perspective to the perspective of the customer and user helps to understand connections. In the words of Marcel Proust: “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes." In a design process, this way of thinking is a central point and basic prerequisite for making new discoveries or improving the existing through a new combination of existing opportunities. This creates innovation.

In this interactive workshop, the approach of Design Thinking is made tangible. With Design Thinking it is possible to create a special form of cooperation characterized by creativity, experimentation, openness and cooperation. Ideas are generated playfully, resulting in holistic and user-friendly solutions. We would like to apply this jointly to the overall Allez Hop! topic by finding answers to the question: “How might we strengthen the French-German exchange of entrepreneurs?” in a co-creative Design Thinking process. Create with us a concept of the future for this!
