Co-Creation Method by Butterfly Works

Butterfly Works combine dsign thinking with co-creation for their own unique methodology. Co-creation is a guiding philosophy at Butterfly Works. We view the communities we work with in Africa and Asia, not as passive consumers of educational services and products but instead as active co-creators of solutions. Following this, any project we work on is co-created throughout, not a once off co-creation event but a series of collaborations that usually takes one to two years from start to completion.

Design Thinking for Managers, book

Have you ever seen a 7-year-old make paper airplanes? Then you’ve seen design thinking. So why isn’t design thinking an established problem-solving tool in business? Because most of us receive more than a decade of formal education that focuses on a very different approach to problem-solving: prove the answer with data first, before you try it. With design thinking, you can nurture disruptive possibilities and unlock the zeal in your organization. And despite your education, we believe you can regain your natural fluency in design thinking quickly. This book will show you how.
