In a world that is dynamic and progressive, we are faced with new challenges every day. We need new, structured, innovative ways of unleashing creativity and solving these challenges.
How, you ask?
The answer is First Principles Thinking.
First Principles thinking is about breaking down a complex problem, questioning everything you think you know and then solving the problem bottom-up with the new knowledge. Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Tesla are a brilliant testament to this.
In this edition of Converge, you will get to hear from ideators, designers, analysts, and technologists who have applied First Principles Thinking to disrupt and innovate in their respective industries.
Join us at Converge 2019 on the 24th of August at the ThoughtWorks office in Koramangala, Bengaluru. The event is open for all, and we expect the audience to be a diverse group of engineers, designers, business analysts, product managers, and entrepreneurs.
