Recently the School of Business and Economics (SBE) performed a 2-day training, which explored opportunities to valorise their own research and education capabilities. An excellent opportunity to apply the Design Thinking approach inhouse.
The SBE-teams were a mix of academic and non-academic staff and they were offered the complete toolkit of the Design Thinking approach by UMIO’s Service Science Factory. The training process resulted in the rapid development of several innovative new services, combining different academic competences.
Besides these specific services, the training fostered the mutual understanding between researchers, educators, and facilitators. Experiencing how combining the different strengths within the university creates value, clearly enhances the common identity and sets up networks for future cooperation.
