Leading innovation requires we master the translation of data into insight and strategy.DMI has tapped Darrel Rhea, one of the world's authorities in Design Research, to create a Master Class for our global community "Design Research and the Customer-driven Innovation Strategy." Revised in 2013, this seminar is one of DMI's most popular and highest-rated seminars.
This is an advanced class for senior managers who need to generate insights to formulate product and business strategies. This ambitious seminar is not a basic "tips and tricks" innovation methods class.

It will require active participation, and the format won't allow for multitasking.
The class will cover 6 key areas:
As professional knowledge workers, our effectiveness is limited by our ability to generate and apply insights. While most of us engage in research activities of some kind, our success with research depends less on the methods for data collection, and much more on how we use the data to generate insights that guide design.

This class examines the fundamentals of how we think, how we question, how we formulate and apply research insights. How can we can become world class in the domain of insights? How can we become more reflective, empathetic, deeper thinkers? What disposition, attitudes or practices are required to be truly insightful? How do we create an environment for our teams that nurtures deep insights? Read more.
