How to de-risk your AI investment with Design Thinking –
What is Design Thinking? What are the challenges of applying Design Thinking to an AI project? Luca met with Padraig Coleman, founder of Innovation on Demand, a company which helps other companies develop tailored agile methodologies to learn more about Design Thinking.
Paudie, who describes himself as “a builder without a hard hat”, has been working with organisations in different fields for many years, helping them bridge the gap between business and technology. Because every project has two players: business and technology, and they speak two completely different languages. So, how can they understand each other? That’s where Design Thinking enters the reckoning.
Paudie shared with us some of the tools he uses in his everyday work:
- Visualisation and brainstorming – https://miro.com/ – https://lucid.app/
