design thinking initiatives

This helps us to systematically apply these human-cantered techniques to solve problems in a creative and innovative way. Design thinking provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. It is a way of thinking and working as well as a collection of hands-on methods.

Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung and GE, have rapidly adopted the design thinking approach. What’s more, design thinking is being taught at leading universities around the world, including Stanford, Harvard and MIT. In India, SNS institutions were the first to adopt the design thinking approach to curriculum development and have incorporated its concept in their regular thought process. The Innovation Hub at SNS institutions had been established to take the institutions towards the path of innovation.
