Design thinking is a recently emerging powerful process of problem solving that begins with understanding the requirements of the customer which have largely gone unaddressed by the existing companies. This process has lead to opening new doors which has given an impetus to drive innovation that encompasses concept development, applied creativity, prototyping, and experimentation. When design thinking techniques are applied to business, the success rate for innovation improves in leaps and bounds. Prof Vora with his immense knowledge gave his guidance to a few students who required inputs into the conduct of their own businesses.
