Design Thinking Mindset

Design Thinking approach is not just a tool / design process / skill. We believe that it is a mindset change for everyone to be a Design Thinker. It a mindset about human centered empathy, problem solving, thinking design as a lifestyle.

We organize online and offline training workshop for nurturing the participants with a design thinking mindset. For facilitating the design thinking process, we developed our own Lean Design Thinking (LDT) Tool, which is available online (Global) and offline (Hong Kong) as a human centric design thinking process. Group of people will work as team members to practice the process, generating ideas and finding human needs of the real users to create new ideas on products / services. They will walk through the process design in several times which is non linear. At the final stage, we need to use design thinking to find the desirable from a human and understnding of the problem. It will not be just an introduction to design thinking, but a practical group experience with one another.

Background of design thinking. For solving problems in a new way, IDEO's Tim Brown and david kelley created the deisgn thinking process to help their clients on creating new products and services. He talked about technologically feasible and economically viable. Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford University is another well-known place for design thinking according to its background on teaching design thinking as d.school.

Our previous clients includes: Airbnb, PolyU Hong Kong, Good Lab, etc.

So, what is Design Thinking Mindest?

Lean Design Thinking (LDT) Tool

Lean Design Thinking tool is developed in 2020 based on design thinking and lean method in order to mix the goods of both thinking methods.

By combining the above two tools, Lean Design Thinking allows adopters to identify the problems at a user's standpoint and learn through failures. Adopters will be able to understand the users' painpoints and build a user-centric solution. Also, this speeds up the process of idea generation and helps adopters to know whether the product succeeds/fails at the very beginning then start again.
