Many companies and organizations – both large and small – are using design thinking to encourage innovation and create results. Design thinking is a human-centric, iterative process to understand the user, challenge assumptions and redefine problems.
But how do you introduce design thinking into your workflow? It’s important to do a few key things. You must start small and let your team practice techniques. Identify those who take to the process naturally and use them to help others progress. Encourage collaboration among your team and let them bring different ideas and views to the table. Understand that design thinking is fluid – it will evolve and change over time and not always in a linear fashion. And, finally, set parameters to make sure you know how to measure your success.
