I am passionate about smart integration of technology for driving growth and profitability. This demands a strategy that goes beyond just connecting the dots and calls for an innovation mindset, empowering us to anticipate the next dot and create the next opportunity.

Design matters because it helps us deliver intrinsic value for unmet needs. We innovate because we are not satisfied with the status quo and refuse to settle for complacency.

We chase perfection, however elusive, not because we think we’ll ever be perfect, but because we believe it brings us closer to excellence in everything we are and ever hope to be.

Connect with me on Twitter @KaanTurnali and LinkedIn so we can stretch old ideas beyond their traditional boundaries. Let’s create new perspectives that serve as a foundation for future innovation and inspire conversations that would have been otherwise lost or never started.

Competing on design thinking requires a fundamental shift in how we approach design to solve business problems. 

I see design thinking as a framework for innovation with an endless opportunity for delivering customer-centric solutions. It the art and science of solving problems—not limited to just new products and services.

Customer-centric design is about looking out from the inside—rather than outside in.

I am convinced that the principles of design thinking shouldn’t be reserved for just new products and solutions. It should also be pursued in every area of our enterprise because no role, no engagement, and no project should ever become a lost opportunity. Learn more..
