…aren’t you already a Design Thinking Professor?”, my former boss asked me when I reported that I will join the Design Thinking Coach Education of Nestlé. Last December I graduated and here are my reflections on the value of the program for me and for the Design Thinking community. By Timo Sackmann
In November 2019, the Nestlé Innovation Methodologies team left Vevey, Switzerland together with a group of expert innovation coaches, to join forces with our likeminded friends at Lufthansa Group, Grundfos and the University of Ghana to deliver the largest Impact Week ever.
Yesterday we hosted a talented group of experts from SAP, IBM, NGSoft, Palo Alto Network, PTC, JPMorgan and Aman as part of Design at Business IL meetup to share and discuss the challenges of design processes in large enterprises.
Once more the Lead Organizers from Impact Week Rwanda 2018 decided to jointly run another Impact Week. Together with a trusted core team and well-known Design Thinking and Innovation Coaches they built a program that should become the biggest Impact Week conducted so far: with 11 Senior and Lead Coaches they trained 56 Junior Coaches in order to run the final four day event with 186 students from the University of Ghana.
Dr. Naalamle Amissah, junior coach and Senior Lecturer of Crop Science at the University of Ghana, summarizes:
“The intercultural exchange during this week made it very special as one had the unique opportunity to interact and co-innovate with others from different countries and cultural backgrounds”.
In only a few days, Impact Week will be landing in Ghana for the first time — We can literally already hear the Kpanlogo Drums! The preparations are at full speed as the Lead Organizers, Senior and Junior Coaches get ready to embark in this journey.
Hélio Mosquim Junior, Global Head of Technology Business Partner at VALE started by explaining the business imperatives and great challenges the company intends to solve through innovation and the organization structure created to accommodate and manage squads around the globe. He mentioned several initiatives such as hackthons, design thinking workshops, open innovation, and strategic areas like Digital Lab, RPA Center, AI Center.
The joint enterprise design thinking journey started in 2013, when Joern Bruecker, Product Group Manager, Innovation Methodology at Nestlé in Vevey, and Jochen Gürtler, Senior Design Strategist and Design Thinking Expert, met for the first time.
At this point of time Nestlé was about to reorganize one part of their IT organization. Given the long historic partnership between SAP und Nestle, Jochen and Joern teamed up to implement Design Thinking at Nestlé IT.
