Course content

The world is changing, you can either allow change to happen to you or you can be a key part of the change. The Applied Innovation Design course will prepare you to take a leading/active role in enabling a change in whatever field you choose, through the experiential application of current theory and commercial practices.

There are many definitions of the word ‘innovation’ and whether you chose to define it as a leap or a hop, innovation is a novel way of realising value. This could be through a new product or service, organisational change, new processes, facilitating creative practice or establishing and leading on strategic direction. The world needs people who are able to approach an ever changing landscape of social, business and sustainability needs, armed with design thinking processes and collaborative approaches, to create real value.

Design thinking skills are eminently transferrable and can be used to help understand and approach a diverse variety of human centred challenges, and have the potential to create significant change. This course will introduce you to the skills and knowledge needed to steer, row and rock the boat in relation to applied innovation activities.
