Design Thinking and
Presented by: Dr Paul Ambrose of UW-Whitewater
The ability to "design think" helped innovators
such as Thomas Edison, Isambard Kingdon Brunel, and Steve Jobs transform
organizations and societies by satisfying market needs and wants through
innovative and compelling products and services. Design thinking is a methodology that immerses
innovation activities with a human-centered design ethos, where matching
people's needs with available technical resources within practical business
constraints are of the essence. In this presentation,
we will look at the fundamentals of design thinking and how it has helped
companies like Apple succeed. We will
also discuss what it takes to be a design thinker, and constraints of design thinking.
About our Speaker:
With Engineering and MBA degrees, Paul Ambrose started his
career as a marketing research executive for a large commercial vehicles
manufacturer in India. He then moved to
consumer banking, working for a large US based multinational bank, also in
India. A passion for new challenges
moved Paul to Hong Kong, where he owned and managed a small business. Currently Paul works in academia as the
Department Chair of IT and Supply Chain Management at the University of
Wisconsin-Whitewater after completing a Ph.D. in Business. Paul enjoys teaching technology-led
innovation anchored on the principles of design thinking. His research focuses on technology use and
success. Social change through social
entrepreneurship by bringing together the spirit of entrepreneurship and the
values of making the world a better place is Paul's passion and he is currently
working on a social entrepreneurship start-up.
