We have continuously evolving technologies ready to automate, to optimize, to streamline and to enhance the design process in countless ways. Despite our irrational ways as human beings, technology has made it possible to systematically analyze our decision-making and provide real-time responses to our choices and actions. This emerging technology enables us to create unparalleled solutions, and therefore, it is important to recognize its potential when looking to develop competitive edge.
Well, first of all, you need a versatile team with a good mix of design, technology and business. Each of these three fields mentioned have their own ways of measuring success; however, there is no company that doesn’t have to think about customers or end-users.

To successfully execute a design process that produces functional, efficient solutions, you need to think about individual experience of a user as well as the underlying technology and the need in the market.
Dash brings people together from different industries to collaborate, generate fresh ideas and create new, inventive concepts. The intention is to spark ambition among aspiring visionaries regardless of their background, and, more importantly, to provide a propitious opportunity to learn from like-minded people. Dash as a design hackathon is a learning experience rather than a contest: it helps people to expand their ways of creative thinking, problem-solving and collaborating. So here comes one of the most important buzzwords of this era: design thinking.
