Design Thinking Engagement: Gamify!

The buzz: Game on!

Design Thinking is based on the concept of deriving the needs of your users, then designing a solution to meet those needs. But how will you engage your Design Thinking participants to boost their creativity, and then engage your target audience to actually use your new solution?

Gamification! It teaches us about different user engagement styles, while Design Thinking tells us which styles will fit a particular user.

How to team-up Gamification and Design Thinking to generate successful innovative solutions?

The experts speak.
