Descripció

The summer course in Design thinking and co-creation presents the basic concepts and methodologies of Design Thinking and Co-creation through developing a real industry project, including presentations, lectures, and workshops by lead professionals in the design thinking and co-creation practice.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, different fields such as business and engineering have regarded design as an important strategic advantage for innovation and change (organizational, social, technological, etc …). Design problems are hard to solve because, basically, they are inherently complex and this complexity increases the difficulty in understanding them and finding reasonable ways to resolve them. The task of designing the outcome at the same time as the context is embedded in design problems. Furthermore, no problem ever exists in complete isolation—every problem interacts with other problems and is therefore part of a set of interrelated problems. Because of this interconnectedness of problems, the design problem-solving process has to be a multidisciplinary endeavor—functional disciplines working in close collaboration.

For team members to reach a shared understanding of problems and a successful agreement to potential solutions, design thinking is needed with its innovative problem-solving methods across disciplines and a user-centered approach, among other characteristics. Answers to key breakthrough innovation questions—"what might be?"; "what should be?" and "what is?"—are formulated through co-creation methodologies.

Co-creation place multidisciplinary design teams and users at the center of the innovation process, not only ensuring that products and services are designed for them but, also, with them. A key belief in the practice of co-creation is that people are able to generate new ideas and make decisions relevant to their future needs and dreams.
