The Human-Centered Approach to Innovation

Human-Centered Thinking (HCT) redefines innovation as a scaleable and repeatable process. Breakthrough ideas might occasionally strike like lightning, but sporadic genius is difficult to leverage as a reliable business model. HCT demystifies innovation by making it less about random inspiration and more about focused inquiry. By reframing a problem or challenge from a real person's perspective, HCT sets you up to find innovative solutions that genuinely address their needs. Learn more about a human-centered approach to innovation.
