    Venture creation and Design Thinking for Entrepreneurs

    The entrepreneurial spirit has been the most significant development in recent econom- ic history. While entrepreneurial behavior is reshaping the business ecosystem, design thinking as an approach can accelerate in introducing innovations, commercializing new technologies, creating new jobs, and creating value by combining resources in exciting new ways. Design thinking has emerged as an important way for designers to draw on rich insights to enhance their products and services. However, design thinking is now beginning to influence how corporate managers go about strategic management, particularly how they bring customer data into their day-to-day planning. We call this integration of design thinking into the practice of strategic management ‘Design-led Strategy.’ In this program, we use design thinking as an ideology to help project managers solve complex problems in a highly user-centric way. This program will be useful for those interested in starting or working for an entrepreneurial venture to collaborate more effectively, solve complex challenges and overcome addiction to the status quo.
