Let’s start with a cliche: society is changing. Although technology – and what it has done to the way customers consume their products and services – is the force that drives us to the future, people are the brains behind that force, and that is why Design Thinking is, simply put, the future.

More Than A Profession, A Qualification

Because it is based on collaboration, empathy and experimentation, Design Thinking is a useful tool for any profession or sector. Not to mention, Design Thinking can also be used to help in the creation of the professions of the future.

A human-centred methodology, Design Thinking pays attention to the individual and gives everyone a voice. When people are truly open to it, Design Thinking is powerful in creating connections and allowing different ideas, points of view and backgrounds to mix, creating innovative, multidisciplinary solutions to complex problems.

The Design Thinking Market Value

Australia is a multicultural society that champions diversity. With technology pushing changes and increasing competition between companies, Design Thining market value is the fact that its approach uses the power of people’s abilities, experiences and differences – a.k.a. multiculturalism – to resolve complex problems.

If future market scenarios and professions will require efficiency and innovation, Design Thinking could not be a better tool to use when navigating this imminent reality.

Practice Your Future Abilities

At Echos, we are sceptical of approaches to futurism that solely focus on tendencies, previsions and emerging technologies. We believe that the future cannot be built on predictions only and so intentionally and collaboratively, designers of the future should create the places where we will be in 5, 10, 25 or 50 years.

Instead of practising for probable and plausible futures, we believe in projecting possible and preferred futures, which means designing for desirable futures for your life, country, organisation, community, government, democracy, city.
