What is design thinking?

Design thinking is a solution-focused approach to innovation that draws on the techniques of creative thinking, human-centered designing, and rapid prototyping. It is the driving methodology of Stanford University’s design school (known as the d.school). It embraces failure, it encourages collaboration, and it runs on the belief that everyone (even you) can think creatively.
