Applying Design Thinking to Innovation

Fredrikstad, Norway | September 23-25, 2019

Design thinking is about applying the human experience to innovation. Digital news and media organizations often approach innovation from the technology lens and not the lens of the human user. To design great digital products and services, it’s about first understanding the people we are designing for.

During he first phase of our program we’ll learn how to innovate and design great digital products and services by looking beyond a screen or device. We’ll work hands-on to uncover insights and ideas, and to understand why prototyping is essential to  developing truly useful, usable and enjoyable digital innovations.

It seems now more important than ever to explore the relationship between digital news and media organizations and the audiences they serve.  Can personalization lead to loyalty, added value, and audience engagement?

How will news and media use these opportunities to increase audience engagement and what is the impact?

During the second phase of our program, we’ll hear from innovators in news organizations who have employed personalization, and loyalty programs to increase audience engagement and revenue. We will learn from media companies who are currently using artificial intelligence to innovate and build new products to serve journalists.
