Design Thinking and Innovation

Design thinking is a method of applying creativity to come up with novel solutions and innovations to tough problems. It's the process of immersing in a problem space, thinking creatively around pain points and opportunity areas, and then iteratively developing totally new solutions. Focused on listening, user empathy, whole-brain thinking, collaboration, and experimentation, design thinking can be applied from business to architecture and from design and to new service development.
