Design Thinking is a method used to solve problems. The Design Thinking Method is ideally suited for solving very complex problems (also known as wicked problems). People are central to the methodology by always defining problems based on human needs. Solution directions are determined with brainstorming sessions, after which you immediately make a prototype with the Design Thinking Method and test the solution in practice.
