Design Thinking Online

An approach focused on product, service and process innovation

The basis of each innovation is to understand who the customer is, what he feels, what he is worried about and what he needs to satisfy his needs.
The first question of a good designer should therefore not be "What do you want?", but rather "How are you doing?".

Design Thinking is an approach focused on product, service and process innovation. It was developed by American designers from Stanford who have begun to apply their design methods far beyond their normal use to innovate products, services, processes, and entire business models. Its basic principles include understanding of customer’s experience, empathy, solution generation, re-application of existing prototypes, and continual feedback receiving followed by adjustments.
