Lean aims to eliminate waste in the creation and discovery of value.

The mission of this programme is simplicity in product and service design.

We aim to actively seek out the best ideas and practices in product and service design innovation, and to communicate them in ways that establish a questioning culture.

This programme is aimed at professionals in Service Design, Agile, and New Product Development, incorporating the associated Innovation concepts and tools (such as TRIZ), held together with Systems Thinking.

To quote Michael Porter (from Harvard Business Review, October 2015):

“The core functions — product development, IT, manufacturing, logistics, marketing, sales, and after-sale service — are being redefined, and the intensity of coordination among them is increasing. Entirely new functions are emerging, including those to manage the staggering quantities of data now available. All of this has major implications for classic organizational structure. What is under way is perhaps the most substantial change in the manufacturing firm since the Second Industrial Revolution, more than a century ago.”

This degree is at the forefront of the exciting developments in Design Thinking, Servitization, Lean Startup, Product Service Systems (PSS), the Internet of Things, Product and Service Psychology, and Agile Thinking.
