Design Thinking

What is Design Thinking?

Design Thinking is both an ideology and a process, concerned with solving complex problems in a highly user-centric way.

Design thinking is a non-linear, iterative process that teams use to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions to prototype and test. Involving five phases—Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype and Test—it is most useful to tackle problems that are ill-defined or unknown.

  • User-centric
  • Approach problems creatively, like designers do…
  1. Empathise
  2. Define (the Problem)
  3. Ideate
  4. Prototype
  5. Test
Snippet from Wikipedia: Design thinking

Design thinking refers to the set of cognitive, strategic and practical procedures used by designers in the process of designing, and to the body of knowledge that has been developed about how people reason when engaging with design problems.

Design thinking is also associated with prescriptions for the innovation of products and services within business and social contexts.
