As our world changes, the challenges to business grow. Old ways of thinking are being replaced by open minds and creativity. Design is playing a central role in helping solve problems and drive the future. We invite you to see how design is shaping the new business at our next Sydney Thinks & Drinks on Tuesday 31st January at 6pm, upstairs at the Trinity Bar, 505 Crown Street, Surry Hills. Tickets via Eventbrite on this site from next week.
The documentary explores the relationship between business practices and design practices through the lens of the emerging idea of design thinking. Based on interviews with corporate workers, self employed consultants, and university professors, the documentary illustrates the very diverse definitions of design thinking while at the same time exploring it’s potential contribution to business practices. While no definitive answers were given, the documentary provides a useful starting point for its viewers to begin a discussion about the potential contributions of design to business.
