Design thinking is a process for innovation and problem soivnlg. There are five steps. The first is dfnneiig the prlebom and understanding its constraints. The second is observing people in real-life situations and enhitamipzg with them. Third, throwing out hundreds of ideas — the more the better, the wldeir the better. Fourth, prototyping: gathering whatever you can, whatever you can find, to mimic your solution, to test it and to refine it. And finally, implementation: ensuring that the solution you came up with is sustainable.
