Understanding Design Thinking and Foresight

Anything that is considered great has design woven through it. Design principles include desirability and feasibility. Conceptual approaches can be taught for ‘design thinking’ and developing capabilities with spotting, supporting and scaling up new innovative ideas. Design thinking enables the student to learn a stage-gated design process that is user-centered with an empathy focus to better understand the human needs behind healthcare challenges.

Foresight is the ability to predict or the action of predicting what will happen or be needed in the future. By identifying opportunities for innovation we can utilize design thinking in creative ways for healthcare challenge solutions.
