We live and work in a world of interlocking systems, where many of the problems we face are dynamic, multifaceted, and inherently human. Think of some of the big questions being asked by businesses, government, educational and social organizations: How will we navigate the disruptive forces of the day, including technology and globalism? How will we grow and improve in response to rapid climate change? How can we become a more efficient and effective organization in the face of static or shrinking budgets? Design thinking offers an approach for addressing these and other big questions. Design thinking can transform the way organizations develop products, services, processes, and strategy. This approach brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. Aarchiz’s Mind to Market business methodology consistently engages complex problems that produce disruptive results and technology. However, unless this disruptive technology can be delivered into the marketplace and be adopted by humans and society, it’s like “one hand clapping.”
This realization led Aarchiz to embrace Design Thinking (DT). Design Thinking brings together what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable. Without one, the other cannot succeed.
Design Thinking is a human-centered creative problem-solving process that provides the "how-to" in order to think "outside the box." It is a five-step process made famous by David Kelley, the founder of IDEO and the Stanford Design School. Design Thinking provides the principles and strategies to harness the creative potential of you and your stakeholders to solve the most difficult and challenging problems. Design Thinking is well suited for fuzzy, undefined problems, where no obvious solutions seem to work. Design Thinking makes teaching innovation and organizational culture change possible by breaking problem solving into a 5-step process
