Examine the philosophy from which user-centered design (UCD) and many innovation frameworks have emerged: design thinking. Grounded in empathy and a hands-on, iterative approach to problem solving, design thinking is the mindset you’ll use to create effective user experiences. The key aspects of design thinking include:
Empathy: observe and engage the people you’re designing a product for
Problem definition: a good solution depends on addressing the right problem
Ideation: a good solution depends on addressing the right problem through divergent and convergent thinking, consider many possible solutions
Prototyping: test those possible solutions
Testing: get feedback from real people that will help you improve your ideas and create solutions
