Case Study

Why is a "design × digital" approach effective for tearing down the "walls" to realize digital transformation? Many companies tend to fall into a situation where they start to adopt digital solutions before clarifying the issues. At the start, it's necessary to discuss and clarify the essential issues, the path to the solution, and what goals to ultimately aim at, with all stakeholders including management and the IT department, et al. To that end, Hitachi recommends utilizing both "Design Thinking" to understand what they is desired based on user experiences including joy and emotion and creating values through new ideas and consensus building, and "Digital Use" to try out new services and businesses based on technology and data.
We introduced this process through a project with Mitsui Fudosan.
