It’s the latest business trend on everyone’s lips, but Design Thinking is more than just a passing fad.

Used as a methodology for solving problems and discovering new opportunities, companies big and small in every industry are integrating it into the way they do business.

Jo Rhoden, a Partner at Deloitte Australia and one of the company’s leading design thinkers and innovators has used her knowledge in Design Thinking to help shape the audit profession within the Australian firm.

During this session, Jo will introduce you to the foundation principles of Design Thinking, and examine some of the tools and methodologies that you can use in your role every day to improve the way you solve problems for your stakeholders.

There will be an opportunity to work through some of the Design Thinking tools yourself, so bring your problem solving hats. There will also be a Q&A with Jo at the end of the session.

A little bit more about Jo:

Jo Rhoden is a Partner in Deloitte’s Audit & Assurance business unit. Originally a trained biologist, Jo then moved into accounting with roles in audit, consulting and banking. She found her passion as an innovator and shaper for the audit profession within Deloitte Australia – winning the Deloitte Australia ‘Innovator Of The Year’ award in 2012.

Working in the Strategic Capability team, Jo brings design capability across the firm, working with stakeholders across the system, including important collaborators outside of Deloitte to help understand both the system and the likely system impacts of change on teams and clients.
