Dear Wolf Siegert,

We are happy to invite you to our next GDTA PowWow webinar – an opportunity for global Design Thinkers to gather online to discuss the latest developments in our community.

GDTA PowWow #9 with Observatory “Design Thinking for Business” at Politecnico di Milano

The next online session will take place on April 30th, 2021 at 3:00 pm (CEST) via Zoom.

We look forward to welcoming our speaker Claudio Dell’Era, Associate Professor in Design Strategy at the School of Management – Politecnico di Milano, and Director of the Observatory “Design Thinking for Business” of the School of Management –Politecnico di Milano. Claudio will talk about “Transformations in Design Thinking: from Creative Ideating to Critical Reframing“.

In today’s world, characterized by an accentuated dynamism, uncertainty and complexity, humans and organizations are frequently overwhelmed by the abundance of products and services. This creates the paradox of choice: the assumption that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction is significantly challenged by contemporary society, where less choices can greatly reduce the anxiety and busyness of our lives. Hence, organizations are looking for methodologies and practices aimed at properly identifying the problem to tackle, interpreting and framing it. Design thinking has frequently been associated with creative ideating, but reframing is an activity that requires criticism in interpreting and defining the addressed problem.
