Course Overview

Design Thinking is a strategic approach towards creative problem-solving by placing users’/customers' needs above everything else. It is a process of questioning: questioning the problem, questioning assumptions, and questioning the implications. It is also an iterative and agile process of ongoing experimentation that is useful in tackling problems that are ill-defined or unknown, by re-framing the problem in human-centric ways, developing ideas, and adopting a practical approach in prototyping and testing. As a process it is a great catalyst of change and evolution.
