Design Thinking

The concept of “design thinking” emerged around the 1960s as an approach to creatively solving problems. In the 1980s, the concept gained momentum in the context of business management and human-centered design as an approach to building programs and processes that are compelling, enjoyable, simple, and conducive to creating productive and meaningful experiences. 

Simply stated, design thinking means adopting a human-centered mindset and a creative problem-solving approach to design meaningful experiences in the physical and digital workplace.
