What is Design Thinking?
Design thinking is a non-linear, iterative process that seeks to understand users (empathize), challenge assumptions, redefine problems and create innovative solutions to prototype and test. The process bounces back and forth to incorporate learnings from failed attempts, feedback from users, and flexibility for new ideas to permeate – ultimately resulting in implementation.
