Design Thinking in Business and IT

You might've talked about innovation with your IT department or software development agency lately and the words «design thinking” were surely mentioned. So what is it? Just another piece of business jargon to add to your arsenal or a useful tool? Or maybe even an overestimated hype? Nowadays every organization or business runs into a myriad of problems as business models become increasingly more complex. Globalization and advances in communication and technology, all add up to creating unique opportunities but also new challenges that are not easy to solve applying the old tested methods. That's where design thinking comes into play. Design thinking is basically a discipline that facilitates innovation and problem solving by taking the human-centered approach and focusing on the needs and wants of the end-user. It follows a string of steps and involves teams with mixed skills and backgrounds so it can combine their different strengths and points of view. Because it brings people in the same environment, with the help of an experienced facilitator, they can establish common ground. The result is that everyone's voice will be heard and collaboration is achieved in a fun and informal way. Everyone within the group is encouraged to share their ideas, experiences, skills and expectations so the group can work through the different options following the DT process and collaborate to reach a solution for the problem at hand.

    quote Steve Jobs “It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them.”

    Co-creation is different to customization as it is not about adding feature that customers ask for. It is all about understanding your customer’s needs so you can create an offering that is scalable and will appeal to many customers.

    t’s easier to understand prototyping of new products, but prototyping concepts or business models can be hard to envision. These type of prototypes usually take the form of storyboards, user scenarios, experience journeys, and business concept illustrations so stakeholders can get involved with the future product or service on a deeper level and provide more insightful feedback.
