Design Thinking

Here is the Design Thinking framework provided by Stanford University. It is open source so anyone can use it. (http://longevity3.stanford.edu/designchallenge/design-thinking-process/)

Last weekend I attended the Small Business Fair at Honolulu Community College. It was fun seeing familiar faces and also learning from others about the plethora of resources available for small businesses.

In one session, I was introduced to Design Thinking thanks to Ian from Oceanit. Basically, It’s a framework built for anyone trying to provide a solution to a problem. Perfect for entrepreneurs.

One of the key takeaways I got from the presentation was that this framework is like a martial art. The more you practice it, the better you’ll be at it. So it made me wonder. Are there groups that spar on a regular basis?

Do you or anyone you know practice Design Thinking? I’d love to connect and chat. Let’s talk story.
