Invented for Life: User-Centered Innovation at Bosch

Placing the right products on the market at the right time is crucial for success—but how do we make this happen? User-centered innovation is one answer to this question.

Lorenz Hagenmeyer, PhD, head of user experience international at Robert Bosch, explains how the company implements user-centered innovation on a product and a strategic level. He outlines three important factors to spark creativity and enthusiasm in design and engineering teams.
