Design Thinking as a Process – U.lab
This video resource by U.lab is part 2/7 in a series of introductory lectures on design thinking. There is no one best DT process. DT is often described as an exploratory process that begins with an initial defining of the problem, followed by exploration of the user and the design space, generating possibilities through brainstorming, building prototypes that are then tested, often a number of times. The feedback is then used to refine the problem resolution and to improve the final outcome. The notion of a process is paradox, as there is a theoretical conflict between the idea of iteration and a standardization of workflows that is usually suggested by process based approaches. So, instead of referring to a ‘process’ design thinkers are navigating through various phases or modes.
