Design Thinking

Discover, Empathize, Experiment, and Produce
 
"Design thinking (dt) is a human-centered problem solving method. It's optimistic. Full of empathy. It uses interactive prototyping to learn by doing and to meet the needs of a user -- or users -- that a design thinker focuses on." 
--DEEPdt Design Challenge Playbook
 
Collaborators are challenged to suspend judgment and leverage insights from a user group or individual to meet the needs derived from discovery and empathetic experiences.
 
Design thinking is not a new way of generating solutions to the problems communities, organizations and people face; however, it has been seen as a very powerful and effective tool for teams to uncover hidden, ambiguous, and unknown truths about the experiences of those they are trying to solve for.
