Large, established organizations as-well-as small, relatively new organizations are making significant shifts that put design much closer to the center of the enterprise. Organizations like IBM, Procter & Gamble, SAP, GE, Phillips, Citrix, and Infosys have heavily promoted the principles of Design Thinking for innovation and growth. Many start-ups (like Airbnb) are constantly using the principles of Design Thinking to quickly provide features and services that are useful to the end-user.
Design thinking is a set of formal methods and techniques for creative and practical delivery of solutions, with the intent of an improved future result. It is more solution-focused thinking – starting with a vision for a better future, instead of solving a specific problem. Design Thinking promotes systems thinking and takes a holistic approach putting the experience of human beings (users) at the center.
Leading educational institutions like Stanford, MIT and Harvard actively promote Design Thinking. Design Thinking has become a part of many management programs and has started percolating even to K-12 education in the USA.
