What does the creation of new products and services require? Sharp insights – which can develop through careful observation of human behaviour. Organizations often lose sight of how human behaviour and its changing nature shape the environment. This field study and workshop is an attempt to understand the silent components of everyday life and decode behaviour, ultimately making our processes and products richer, more nuanced and successful. The sessions look at the non-formal aspects of human behavior, and how they shape the environment to reveal why people do what they do. This understanding is critical to address and identify unspoken and unmet needs which can become a springboard for innovation.
- Analytically decode qualitative data to generate critical insights that could lead to massive and meaningful innovations
- Understand consumers better and identify new spaces or unmet needs
- Acquire methods to study human behavior and also develop empathy
