DESIGN THINKING - A Problem-Solving Approach

Design thinking is a problem-solving approach that emphasizes empathy, creativity, and iterative prototyping to develop innovative solutions to complex problems. It is a human-centered approach to design that focuses on understanding the needs and perspectives of users, and using that understanding to inform the design process.

Design thinking involves several stages, including

  1. understanding the problem,
  2. gathering information and insights,
  3. brainstorming and ideation,
  4. prototyping and testing, and
  5. iterating based on feedback.

Throughout the process, design thinking encourages collaboration, experimentation, and a willingness to iterate and refine ideas.

Design thinking can be applied to a wide range of challenges, from

  • product design to
  • business strategy to
  • social innovation.

It has become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to foster innovation and creativity in a variety of contexts.
