IE Business School, a think tank in Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity, is pleased to invite you to a Social Innovation Workshop which will tour Amsterdam (27th November), Brussels (28th) and also Zurich (29th) this month.
During this workshop we will explore social innovation and entrepreneurial challenges through the development of creative and innovative solutions for the BoP (Base of the Pyramid) and other social enterprises through design thinking. Design Thinking is a methodology that inspires the full spectrum of innovation activities with a human-centered design ethos. It’s framed on the capacity to combine empathy, creativity and rationality in order to satisfy your user needs. You will learn the key concepts of Design Thinking, experiment with collective creativity, and leave with three key tools to apply in future creative challenges. Design thinking you can learn at a workshop; it takes a lifetime to master it.
