Disruptive Market Innovation through Design

when 19 July 2016 - 22 July 2016
language English
duration 1 week
fee GBP 950

This course explores the new thinking needed to step change innovation. The Disruptive Market Innovation through Design module is split into two different stages, an evolution stage where participants look at iterating a product, and a revolutionary stage where they completely rethink it. Comparing the two approaches and reflecting on both is a key outcome.
