5 – reflections on design thinking
This section will enable you to recognise design thinking and its value, as well as to critically reflect on what design thinking means and on the results that it generates.
see page 53 of BDI.
One way of reflecting on what design thinking means and how it can be of value, is by gathering together examples of it to look at and consider. Think about the objects, media, environments, services and experiences youâ€™ve encountered or read about in design journals and magazines, in school or at your business, or simply in your vicinity.
Then consider how you might answer the following questions:
â€“ Why is it an example of design thinking?
â€“ Is the design thinking in the process or in the result? (If all of your findings are results-based, look a bit closer for design thinking in processes.)
â€“ Was there a paradox resolved?
â€“ Could you have thought of it?
What processes, skills, resources and specialists do you maybe lack?
Please feel free to upload your examples below, or post some links to good examples that you have found.
