#510 Agile and Design Thinking, the Perfect Pairing for a Successful Project
A key reason for using agile techniques is to deliver value quickly. However, this may not solve the right problem. Design thinking is about exploring the problem and possible solutions before jumping into a solution. When combined, these two techniques can help ensure the right problem is being solved as quickly as possible. This presentation looks at design thinking and agile and how they can be combined for successful outcomes.

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Describe design thinking and provide examples of the associated tools/techniques.
  • Explain how design thinking can be combined with agile approaches in order to solve complex problems.
