Design Thinking : Essential for Government Departments
Civilian and Societal problems are wicked problems. In Design parlance, wicked problems are those complex issues where there are multiple stakeholders with varied interests, changing dynamics of the public, regulations and laws, other societal and civilian constraints, etc. Our indigenous Design Thinking Process and crafted Design Tools are instrumental in navigating through such complexities and align every stakeholder to address the core issue of civilian and social impact.
However, solving such complexities through Design Thinking has to be shifted from ‘one-time problem’ solving to making Design Thinking as ‘mindset change’. Thus, it becomes inevitable to adopt Design Thinking as a life-skill.
We firmly believe that government office-holders and administrators would be well served by using a structured innovation process that is built upon the practices taught in Design Thinking. We would co-create and customize workshops suiting to the expectations of the government and administrative sector.

The School of Design Thinking helps government departments shift their focus.
The uniqueness of the School of Design Thinking lies in its belief of Preparing the Design Mind for Design Adopters. It not only works on its indigenous Design Thinking Process and Design Tools, but it ensures that Design Thinking is made a life-skill for participants. Thus, the focus on Design Mind makes it stand apart from the league of all experts in this field.
