MGMT71-326: Project Innovation and Change

Description

This subject immerses students in a practical, user-centric approach for the creative, evidence-based resolution of problems. This iterative, collaborative process draws heavily from design thinking and is applicable to a broad array of societal, organisational and project challenges. Key elements include a focus on understanding and empathising with the user, challenging assumptions, considering multiple perspectives, generating and exploring creative ideas, making and learning from mistakes, questioning implications and adaptively planning the implementation of validated solutions. It is a way of thinking and working as well as a collection of hands-on methods, and is especially useful in addressing problems that are ill-defined, complex or unknown, leading to innovative change. The approach can help project teams learn faster and achieve more effective and creative outcomes, while reducing the risks associated with launching new ideas or implementing change initiatives. This subject is open to all disciplines and programs to support the interdisciplinary problem-solving nature of this approach.
