Topic

Design thinking in Project Management

In this presentation, we discuss Design Thinking and how it can be leveraged to add value to the practice of project management.

Projects in today’s world function in a complex ecosystem and each project poses unique challenge to managers. Design thinking in management is approaching management issues the way designers approach design issues (Dunne and Martin, 2006). Design is used in almost every profession, but it’s not surprising that it sometimes could be the least understood activity, and even when it is understood it may not be used efficiently in a project environment. This presentation explores design thinking as applied in project management.
