London to host Design Thinking & Innovation Week
Design Thinking Innovation Week, created by Future London Academy, is being organized in the capital city of United kingdom from 16th to 20th September. "This is a unique programme for creative entrepreneurs, designers and business owners ? introducing you to London's most innovative businesses," stated the organizers calling it the week long immersive programme. The progamme has been well received and sold out, I was told when I visited their website.

The website of the event added, "Every day will consist of keynote presentations, case studies, roundtable discussions and visits to the top companies who adopted the human-cantered approach, where you will meet the teams behind their latest research and innovation...You will learn about the latest innovation methodologies, and best tools for product and business management ? and have the opportunity to ask any questions in an informal atmosphere."

The organizers have promised that all lectures and workshops would take place in the actual agencies giving participants a better context of the topic to provide inspiration and tools for participant's work area, get an expert opinion and keep up-to-date with the latest trends in the industry.

Design thinking is viewed as a human-oriented creative way of providing solutions or solving problems by researchers, interventionists, functionaries, and organizations and their functionaries to focus on the users and clients' needs for better products, services and processes, I gather.

These days, people are talking about different kinds if literacy, and design literacy is one of them. Experts say that now the general education must include computer literacy, media literacy, legal literacy, health literacy, physical literacy, etc., as part of curriculum to create individuals with awareness and sensitivities in social life and later in work life. Also, the functionaries of various organisations are being trained in all kinds of literacy and thinking skills to become solution providers and innovators.
