Design Thinking

Creativity instead of monotony

Have you or your employees ever been dissatisfied with a newly implemented IT solution?

Are you unsure how best to find solutions to your IT challenges?
Or would you like to be more innovative, but don't know how?

Be creative and focus on the user

In addition to intelligent technologies such as machine learning and the Internet of Things, the SAP Intelligent Technologies portfolio also includes a new method for finding solutions: Design Thinking.

A Design Thinking workshop always takes place in a relaxed atmosphere and creative environment.

We are happy to provide appropriately designed rooms in our house. There, the participants can give free rein to their thoughts.

Design thinking involves working in multi-disciplinary teams.
This means that not only decision-makers participate in the workshops, but also representatives from the specialist departments are involved from the very beginning. In an iterative process, we first familiarize ourselves with your problem and then enter into a brainstorming session together with you. Criticism of other workshop participants' ideas is absolutely taboo during this session. Afterwards, we discuss your ideas, sort them into clusters and decide on the favorites.

In a short time, we then develop a first prototype to make the favored ideas more tangible. We start with so-called low fidelity mockups. Participants are provided with pens, paper and sticky notes for an initial rough visualization of the ideas. The mockups serve our UI developers as a basis for a first prototype, so that the workshop participants can see their ideas on a mobile device or desktop and check their suitability a short time later. Often, changes are still made to the prototype. And that's absolutely fine, because that's the only way to find the best solution.
