In recent years, design methods have become widespread in companies and organizations around the world. They are used to create better collaborations, focus on customer/user needs and to develop and see solutions from new angles.
That is why I look forward to presenting our new toolbox, where we give you the opportunity to download and use a wide variety of design tools to help you and your team develop ideas and create concrete results in a simple and effective way.
Using the toolbox, you will learn to put focus on and engage your users, and learn how to test ideas to ensure they address a real need. The tools can be used by anyone and can be tailored to fit you, your company or organization.
Why use design tools?
In short: Design produces results.
Companies such as LEGO, ISS and Danfoss are all design driven. The same goes for public actors from hospitals and ministries. Despite their diversity, they use design methods for the same reason: to create change that focuses on the person who will ultimately receive their product or service. The user.
Private companies and public organisations indicate in our studies that they gain value from using design. The consulting firm McKinsey recently examined the effect of design. Last year, they published the report "The Business Value of Design", which shows that companies using design methods consistently have 32% higher profits and 56% higher ROI for shareholders.
Now it's your turn
Design is not just for large companies or organisations. Everyone, big or small, can use design tools to develop ideas, brainstorm, develop products, or simply to clarify strategic goals.
We want to help as many as possible to understand how to use design to create change – and to choose to do so. That's why we share our toolbox, which we hope you will try out. As mentioned: You do not need to know design in advance to use them. They are all presented thoroughly. Just get started.
