WHAT DO I PRACTICE
& WHOM DID I LEARN FROM?

 DESIGN THINKING

FORESIGHT

INNOVATION

FUTURE DRIVEN INNOVATION

TREND DRIVEN INNOVATION

ART OF HOSTING & HARVESTING MEANINGFULL CONVERSATIONS

 It's spirit, from the 8 years I spent in IKEA, a design driven company. Here I learned how to do business putting the human at center of it, customer, employee or citizen. How to work in the reality of the customer. How to co-create with suppliers and employees. Later on, I found out these were minsets of „Design Thinking” and I went to study formally the tools & methods of Design for Innovation
