WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
 
The most important question strategic leaders are grappling with is which business challenges are to be addressed using a corporate innovation drive and which are the ones that should pass through a normal strategic approach.
Problem Framing is a 5-hour workout that involves the main stakeholders, typically executive level and business level decision makers. This is a time-tested methodology evolved by our globally acclaimed partners, Design Sprint Academy, Berlin. Problem Framing is primarily used prior to running an Innovation Design Sprint or undertaking a Design Thinking journey and is customized for the Indian business context by QGLUE.
