Engaging Thinking: A Human Centered Approach to Innovation
Engaged thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation. Its objective is to generate value by holistically engaging people-namely employees, consumers, and communities, from the design to launch of products and services. Expanding beyond the boundaries of the organization, Engaged Thinking seeks to connect to and engage global stakeholders and communities for human centered innovation.
