What can we learn from strategies designers use during the process of designing? And what can we learn from software and product development methods?

Innovative Agile Toolkit:

  • introduction to agile methods and agile approaches, used in project management and product development;
  • Design Thinking method for problem detection and solution finding. Design Thinking process: emphasize, define, ideate, prototype, test;
  • Scrum – about the method, Scrum teams, Scrum roles, and Scrum events.

Design Thinking helps us find the right business problem to go after. Scrum/Agile (and Lean Startup) helps us find the right way to solve problems and reach goals.

Design thinking helps companies become faster at identifying and tackling the right problems. Design thinking by definition targets the problems that seem invisible. The key to success is the inclusion of abductive thinking in the first stage of the process – empathizing or – what exactly is the problem?

AmCham Young Professionals went through 4 stages of the process – empathize (interview on experience); define (dig deeper); ideate (capture findings, needs, insights), define the problem statement, sketch 5 radical solutions, share feedback and prototypes.






Agile methods are becoming trendy in the world of project management. Scrum changes companies’ mindsets, as people become first and processes become second. Individuals and interactions among them are far more important than processes. Scrum is based on three pillars: transparency, inspection, adaptation. Scrum team values are commitment, focus, openness, courage, and respect. Each team member is heard and each member is an added value for the team.
