The Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design (HHCD) at London's Royal College of Art, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are working together on people-centred innovation for technologies, e.g., AI, virtual assistants and voice accessibility, as well as more complex projects holistically addressing areas of technology, environment and people in helping large organisations move forward in a digital-first world. The case studies that will be presented will illustrate the power of design and inclusive thinking in bringing together international, multi-partner, multi-cultural teams, to co-create and deliver solutions that positively impact individuals and organisations. The HHCD homegrown model of Creative Leadership has served as a framework for the delivery and informs opportunities and pathways to develop further applications in wider industry domains.
