 FREE WEBINAR
WHAT IS DESIGN        THINKING?
In recent years, Design Thinking has become a buzzword; yet, there are not many opportunities to actually learn it in Japan. Join this online seminar hosted by Shizenkan University for a unique chance to learn about the design thinking approach and mindset from a major expert in the field, Seiji Inuzuka of KRMK.

The core characteristics of design thinking include:
*empathy
*synthesis
*prototype

Other prominent features of the design thinking mindset are its human-centeredness, emphasis on collaboration and learning through exploration and experimentation. Design thinking allows the unleashing of people’s full creative energy and radically improves working processes. It is a critical skill required for modern business leaders that allows the integration of human needs, technological feasibility and business success.
Design thinking gives creative tools to non-designers to address the challenges they face in product development, as well as business and social innovation. Acquiring this tool kit gives immediate benefits for you and your business, including new approaches to problem-solving, product and process development and innovation.
Hironori Iwasaki and Seiji Inuzuka will discuss what exactly the design thinking mindset is and demonstrate how design thinking can be utilized in business with actual cases.
