In this era of disruption, constant innovation is the most critical skill.
We believe in the philosophy of ‘Renaissance Mind’ (built around Integrative Thinking) for developing an integrative perspective that has driven creative thinking, technological progress and innovation throughout human history. Renaissance Mind is a zero-base thinking approach that integrates Design Thinking, Future Thinking and Business Thinking to confront orthodoxies, repurpose resources and create blue-ocean opportunities.
Future thinking direct cues from pivotal megatrends that affect the all of us in the future. It combines systems thinking and divergent-open-thinking whereas Design-Thinking is about convergence. The true innovation comes from the amalgamation of the two. We have developed Kedging, a proprietary tool based on this concept, that helps us throw the anchor into the future trends and identify future opportunities today.
FOUR TENETS OF DESIGN THINKING
Design Thinking is a convergence of empathy, visualization and imperfections of the new, to achieve intended goals. At Turian Labs we believe and practice Design Thinking not as a 5-step process but rather as a flexible framework that is built on 4 pillars of Empathic Inquiry, Abductive Reasoning, Creative Visualization & Iterative Prototyping. Regardless of their sequence, these interconnected tenets could be applied to any decisioning process.
DESIGN RESEARCH TOOLS
Design Research tools are set of methods used by designers and business strategists all over the world as a means for understanding the context and co-creating new ideas. Some familiar tools are - fly-on-the-wall, journey maps, story-boarding, mood-boards, metaphor elicitation etc. We also use several tools and method developed by us like Sense-Storming and Desirability Matrix'to recognize gaps and potential opportunities.
