Design Thinking Skills™

Design Thinking is a user-centred method to solve real-world problems. It's an approach that uses creative thinking, teamwork, empathy, concept creation, prototyping and testing. It is a structured and creative way of problem solving. Originally devised as a systematic way to design interesting and functional products, Design Thinking has now diversified to be used in multiple fields.
