POLISHOPA 2016 Design Thinking Conference Bydgoszcz 2016 (22-25 June 2016) was again the conference with an international dimension. In addition to the conference part, POLISHOPA also included workshop days for those who – in addition to theoretical knowledge – wanted to try their hand at design work with the methodology.


We moved people! We wanted to revolutionize their approach to work, acting and thinking. We showed that it can be different, that you can make and change everything. Regardless of the degree of knowledge, because the topics of the presentations were adapted for both beginners and those more advanced design thinkers. About the revolution by design thinking, among others, talked Federico Lozano (Norwegian University of Science & Technology), Marcin Piotrowski (Play) and Beverly Ingle (University of North Texas).


After the first dose of reliable knowledge about the basics of design thinking, it was the time to show what’s revealing is the very methodology. We checked what it can change in many areas of life, whether it is the kind of discovery or innovation? And if so … how to implement it? Who have helped? About this spoke Krzysztof Sadowski (T Komp), Tomasz Zaboklicki (PESA Bydgoszcz SA) and Iwona Szatkowska (Central Computer Centre, Warsaw)


The challenge for those who simply can’t wait to personally deal with the DT practice. Those interested in working under the supervision of outstanding specialists and trainers who have devoted their professional lives methodology and design issues. In the 2016 edition, the workshop was attended by 25 people.
