We need to develop more and more innovative ideas. This is where design thinking comes into play. A set of innovative working methods that can lead to disruptive results.
Design Thinking describes a multitude of innovation methods. Especially through the many design sprints we have conducted, we have a lot of experience with a wide variety of design thinking methods. See two of our favorites below!
At coac, we started in 2012 with our first public Design Thinking workshops. Since then, we have invented the concept of enterprise Design Sprint, founded our co-creation space akkuraum and kept optimizing our initiative to create digital prototypes in the context of complex technology.
The digitalization has led to a massive increase in dynamic, while our thinking is still analog. To adapt to this, we must learn to think in a new, non-linear way. Digitization knows no boundaries and we need creative and innovative solutions! This means breaking down walls between both disciplines and departments. The challenges facing organizations today are too complex to stick to old processes.
Cooperative Innovation needs an environment to flourish. The akkuraum is just that. Located in the heart of cologne, our co-working space presents the perfect room to create and shape. Lots of disruptive ideas with lasting impacts had their origin here over the last decade.
Design thinking enables one to think outside of conventions to create truly disruptive innovation.
To tackle increasingly complex problems, design thinking enables participants of different expertise and backgrounds to find the best solutions
Inspired by design thinking methods, we created our own unique design sprint concept to create a digital prototype within six working days.
