Inhalte der LV

This course is targeted at students interested in applying innovation methods and creativity techniques. It focuses on how different methods and tools can be applied in order to

  • thoroughly understand an identified problem
  • generate ideas for solving this problem and
  • selecting the best solution and developing it.

Specifically, this course focuses on goal-oriented, yet open and unbiased approaches that help in involving different actors (individuals/organizations) who are concerned either directly or indirectly by a particular problem (e.g., customers, users, experts, stakeholder). As a result, more holistic solutions can be obtained. 

Overall, this course aims at providing students with a toolkit of innovation methods and creativity techniques and with knowledge about how to apply them.
