    Senior UX DesignerKPMG
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Working as a Senior Product Designer for KPMG in the Human Centred Design Team in Connected Technology in London. Organisations can sometimes invest immense time and resources into building business cases, but not enough time in framing the real problem that they are facing. This approach can see startups fail to get off the ground, or innovative ideas in established businesses go nowhere. KPMG’s design thinking methodology is a customer-centric, creative and experimental way to overcome this issue. It sets out to identify and frame the real customer issues that the business needs to tackle, and then uses creative approaches to generate a wide range of possible solutions. Contact me for more information about working with us to solve your business challenges.
