Design thinking and innovation is a key aspect of any career today. Coming up with something new implies coming up with a different and better solution to problems from everyday.
The program is designed around hands-on design sessions, re-engineering and challenge completion. The famous inspiration Steve Jobs has this to say about design: “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.” Jason Fried puts this as "The design is done when the problem goes away.”
