Syllabus

Design led innovation is an approach to innovation that comes from the understanding that users do not buy products and utilise services solely on their function and form alone. Users 'experience' a product or service in a holistic way and are often driven by emotional considerations that can get lost in a purely functional or business-led approach that responds to needs and data-driven analysis. Design led innovation enables organisations to drive the market rather than simply adapting to it. This unit prepares students to create innovative solutions to known or unknown problems through an exploration of the design led innovation methods and techniques.
