We are happy to invite you to our upcoming D-Flect session, which will take place on Monday, December 2, 2019 at the HPI School of Design Thinking. This time we look forward to welcoming Prof. Dr. Falk Uebernickel, Chair of the Design Thinking and Business Innovation research group at Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI).
The “Design Thinking and Innovation Research” research group is investigating methods and approaches on how the application of human-centered design (HCD) is leading to sustainable business innovations in a corporate context. Special focus is on software-driven product, service and process innovations.
Relevant research topics include methods for better quantification of human-centered design, the management of Design Thinking and HCD in corporations and associations as well as the connection between HCD, Design Thinking and new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI).
