Remaining Relevant – Leverage Continuous Improvement Skills to Enable Design Thinking and Drive Business Transformation

Have you recently found yourself wondering if the skills you’ve spent your whole career learning even matter anymore in a world where “disruptive change” seems to have become the norm?  This discussion highlights the challenges with traditional continuous improvement techniques and focuses on the need to approach strategic transformations using design thinking.

We will look at best practices using tools from our continuous improvement toolkits that can be applied within a design thinking methodology.  With a few small changes to how we approach problem solving, we can be ready to help our organizations (and ourselves) accelerate the pace and scale of change required to experience true transformation.
