The Design Thinking Summit, which is sponsored by PNO Consultants among others, is a leading event in the innovation world. Aside from innovation leaders at Johnson & Johnson, Philips, GE and Coca Cola, PNO innovation expert Lieke Gerris will be there to introduce the way PNO can enhance, improve and advance the process of design thinking.

DESIGN THINKING AND INNOVATION

Design thinking is one of the ways of innovating intelligently. The tricky thing is, that even the customer doesn’t always know what he is waiting for. Like Henry Ford said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses”. This makes the challenge to always integrate new insights into design thinking based innovation processes, testing and improving the solutions in several iterations, so that a continuous, holistic process emerges.

With a systematic approach to innovation discovery, we help you define, scout, partner, develop, fund and validate your innovation.

DISCOVER, DEFINE, DEVELOP, DELIVER

The method PNO Consultants has developed, enhances the traditional 4D method: Discover, Define, Develop, Deliver. PNO uses intelligence to chart short and long term innovation trends (Discover) and to integrate this in the analysis of customer and market needs (Define), to see how new external stakeholders can be involved in technological development (Develop) and ensure the necessary funding to realise the innovation (Deliver). By connecting these steps to intelligence based on unexplored resources, the impact of design thinking sometimes even increases exponentially. For instance, in our UTILE project we developed a method to evaluate European projects, extract the assets and define the market readiness of the assets. UTILE has developed a strategy to support these promising products and services in bringing them to the market.
