Design Thinking is a mindset, a stepping stone towards becoming an innovative organisation.

Design Thinking is a problem definition and problem-solving methodology that focuses on understanding how humans work, and what they need. In the business context, empathy is developed for the customer by understanding their needs. Design Thinking provides an extensive array of tools to examine large, complex problems and deliver truly innovative solutions.  


To meet rapidly changing market conditions and increasingly sophisticated customer demands, companies must continually reinvent themselves to stay ahead. Design thinking, and more broadly innovation, have become a core focus to keep pace with these shifting dynamics. 


Without a clear strategy and commitment, innovation initiatives face numerous challenges including inconsistent funding of initiatives or multiple innovation projects commencing with a hypothesis being tested, leading to inconclusive results. 

At ADAPTOVATE, we recognize that innovation is a collaborative sport which starts at the top.

  • Leaders must establish a vision, a clear strategy, and live the values of innovation  
  • The organization must embrace a “test and learn” culture  
  • Employees should be encouraged to collaborate and experiment with diverse ideas  

ADAPTOVATE’s innovation offerings help organizations transform their culture and achieve valuable outcomes faster.
