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.

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.
