Design Innovation Day

9th March 2018

Meet renowned innovators from top companies, learn the entire design process, and apply your newfound skills immediately.

As Steve Jobs put it, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like, Design is how it works”

Successful products are built by a combination of understanding user and business needs (Viability), skillful execution (Feasibility), and creating value and delight (Desirability).

At Agile India’s Design Innovation Day, we will convene brilliant leaders from the Business, Design and Engineering communities and explore what it takes to build awesome user experiences.
