Design Thinking Mindset is
Essential for a Better World.

What is Design Thinking (as a Mindset)?

Idea Development is ...

“Let’s brainstorm something new!”

We always hear about this in a team meeting or when you are attending a Hackathon, and everyone is looking something “new.”

Then you started to discuss with others and think about what to do.

However, we usually create some boring ideas or even create nothing. Why? Because idea development process is quite different with our usual mindset and our brain is lazy. As the book Think, Fast and Slow said, 95% of our decision based on the system 1, intuition.

That's why you need an outsider to help.

3 Key steps in Idea Development:

social entrepreneurship, seeking opportunity
Identify the User & Problem
social entrepreneurship, embrace failure
Brainstorm New Ideas
social entrepreneurship, focus on execution
Validate & Test

Design Thinking Mindset

Design Thinking is not just a tool / design process / skill. It is a mindset and it is an essetial mindset to have a better world. Design Thinking Mindset includes Empathy, Creative Confidence, and Experiment Spirit.

Empathy
Empathy is not an ability to know others feeling. It is an awareness to remind yourself that actually you know nothing and that’s the reason why you should always share what you feel and ask others what they feel.

Creative Confidence
Having confidence in creativity doesn't mean that you can draw something beautiful. It means that even you draw worst, you are still willing to illustrate and not afraid to share with others.

Experiment Spirit
Experiment means two things, one is execution, another is embrace failure. Both of them are difficult to human being. It takes brave to try something new and kick start the execution. Usually we plan a lot. If you want to develop an successful idea, I suggest you to plan less and act more.

Supporting Ecosystem

According to our observation in Hong Kong, one of the key factors why social enterprise fail is that they do what they want to do, but not providing what the customer want.

As a design thinker and changemaker based in Hong Kong, we help at the idea generation and validation stage. It ensure that the idea is problem solution fit and worth to move on to the next stage.

Not limited to Hong Kong, we work globally via online meeting.
