CMS seminar: The Promise of Design Thinking in Civilian and Military Organisations

Toy soldiers on a chessboard

Recent security issues such as civil wars in the Middle East and North Africa, refugee crises, terrorism and cyber vulnerabilities are testing the limits of traditional processes to solve problems. For several organisations including NATO members and partners, design and innovation methodologies offer promising new tools to address these issues. This seminar seeks to introduce these methodologies adapted for security purposes, to expose attempts and achievements and share future considerations from the US, Canadian and Danish Perspectives.
