Why We love Data
INNOVATE THROUGH YOUR DATA:
Design Thinking: Conceptualize your Ideas with an African user in mind
The objective of this session is to communicate and explore design thinking as an emerging approach to problem solving (development of new ideas, business models and programs) that takes a system perspective to unpacking pain points and reconstructing them from a user’s perspective.
Discussions will include problem re-framing, the use of ethnographic or generative research tools for exploring problems, the use of visualization for understanding research outcomes, and prototyping for testing assumptions developed before implementing validated solutions.
Additionally, in this session a community of practice focusing on data driven innovations will be unveiled and endorsed by the Tanzania Data Lab.
