What is Stanford's Design Thinking process?
Stanford's Design Thinking Process is used to create products that are suited for public use. There are five steps to Design Thinking
- The first step is empathy; we see how others feel towards specific item. Interviews are used to gain insight to human nature.
- The second step is to define. In this step, we use the information gathered from interviews to find the user's real problem.
- Ideate, the third step in Design Thinking, is where the group finds solutions to the problem.
- The fourth step is to prototype. Once an idea is decided upon, groups work together using random materials to construct exampled of their product and explain how their product works.
- Testing is the final step. Groups rebuild their prototypes and create a working product. once built. testing begins. Testing identifies problems with the item, so the product can be modified better to the user.
Once all steps are completed, the cycle repeats to enhance the product.
