Theme : New Product Development

In an intensely competitive market, with even more diverse and demanding customers, companies are often left unsure of exactly what products, communications and services to create for what segments of the market. Design, with its ability to understand users, redefine problems and create systemic, human-centered solutions, can help companies better understand their customer's daily lives, and lead directly to valuable (and valued) offerings that are effectively tailored to their market.

The Design Conclave will guide the participants through the various stages of new product development. It will focus on the process that can help in the creation of innovative industrial products. The participants will learn how to identify new opportunities, design methodologies and tools in practice, how to improve products, and branding.
