Design thinking is all about empowerment and unleashing potential
Design thinking has been around for a while now. I have been practicing it for almost ten years now. All innovations follow the Gartner Hype Cycle and that shows us that the interest in design thinking is waning. There are other ways of working that are related to design thinking like service design, design sprints, and different forms of Agile. All these things have their ups and downs when it comes to popularity. All these things have their benefits and pitfalls. What I like about all these new ways of working is that they allow us to create a different space. It’s a space in which we have tools to empower people, to tap into their unused potential, to make the quiet people heard, to truly co-create solutions, to create a platform for all stakeholders to come together. And that is what the future should look like.
