Yesterday I had the pleasure to talk in Mannheim about Design Thinking during the “Technologietage” from the DSAG, the german SAP user group.
Although the focus were clearly pure technological topics like the latest stuff from our labs (HANA, SAP Cloud, SAPUI5, mobile or how all of this fit together) it was a very positive experience for me to talk about how user-centered innovation could be achieved using Design Thinking methodologies. Not the technology should be the starting point but the user and her or his needs. This message was well-received and the long and energized discussions after my talk showed me, that there is a high interest into this topic.
If you are interested here are the presented slides (German only).
