What is Design Thinking?
Design thinking is an approach that has the capability to give a new outlook to companies to solve problems and help them innovate. Design thinking helps structure team interactions to cultivate greater inclusiveness, foster creativity, deepen empathy, and align people around specific goals and results.
By combining business methods with Design Thinking, organizations can establish a more sensitive and comprehensive approach towards handling problems and creating value to their products/services.
Applied design thinking in professional problem solving incorporates mental models, tools, processes, and techniques such as design, engineering, economics, humanities, and social sciences to identify, define, and address professional challenges in strategic planning, product development, innovation, corporate social responsibility, and beyond. It also helps the organizations to fill critical gaps and deficiencies.
