An introduction to iterative and revolutionary approaches to design innovation.

Course overview
This course explores the new thinking needed to achieve step-change innovation. The Disruptive Market Innovation Through Design course is split into two different stages:
1. Evolutionary stage
Participants will consider the role of iteration in product design.
2. Revolutionary stage
Participants will approach the product from an entirely new perspective.
A key outcome at the end of the course is that participants will compare and reflect on the two approaches.
