Design Thinking, Lean & Agile Techniques

MB219

Design thinking is applied to strategy and innovation and is concerned with solving problems through synthesis. It allows work on many possible solutions at once, breaking down complex issues into tangible ones that can be analyzed and solved.This method enables consideration of the problem from a variety of perspectives and speculates on both the past and future of the situation.

System Dynamics is useful in policy or strategy formulation, in rapidly changing or complex situations. It is used to solve problems by seeing the bigger picture as an additional tool to traditional analysis that is concerned with breaking a problem down to its constituent parts.
