Welcome to my second Yes, You Can Innovate Conversation, 40 minutes of inspirational and thoughtful explorations with those leading and enabling others to innovate on Purpose and with Impact.
Together with Dr Bettina von Stamm, we explored the world of Design Thinking and how it is a central component of The Six ‘I’s® of Innovation.
Founder of the Innovation Leadership Forum and Author of Managing Innovation, Change and Creativity and The Innovation Wave: Meeting the Corporate Challenge, Bettina has been a visionary thinker in the field of innovation for 30 years, practicing Design Thinking long before it became a popular buzz word.
As a guidepost to our exploration, we explored Design Thinking in the context of sustainability and the importance of it as the key driver of innovation. We are also proud to say that Bettina was the first Six ‘I’s® Certified Practitioner in the world and we are honoured to have her as our academic advisor.
In this session we will explored:
- What is design thinking and how does it nest in The Six ‘I’s®?
- Why design thinking is necessary, but not sufficient
- The importance of systemic thinking for sustainable innovation
