Course overview

Observation is a key component of innovation. By observing how we and other people do things, we will spot opportunities for improvements. The more we observe, the more opportunities we’ll find. And if a problem is spotted, we can work to provide solutions. 

In business innovation, becoming a critical observer can help you recognize problems before others do. It allows you to predict obstacles on the horizon. And, by heightening awareness of the unexpected, and plotting and analyzing data, you can provide original solutions to problems that would otherwise be unforeseen.
