Design Thinking is an approach that combines different methods and tools to solve problems and generate ideas by means of a defined process. Currently, Design Thinking is mainly used in the context of innovation. The "modern" part here is not the combination of methods, but the underlying mindset which takes up current challenges and trends:

DESIGN applied to other subjects ...

Designers integrate the outward appearance (the shape) into the function of an object, always in interaction with the customers (usability). Although it is obvious that products and services are always customized and therefore should be developed together with the customer, "the customer" has long been neglected in the innovation process. Design Thinking moves the three aspects of desirability, feasibility and profitability closer together again.

AGILITY ...

"The big plan as a management method does not work anymore, because everything is constantly changing in our highly complex and unpredictable world." (cf. Erbeldinger & Ramge | Durch die Decke denken) The trend in project management, business management and human resource management is therefore moving away from long-term concepts to more short-term, flexible iterations. Design Thinking works according to this principle.

Focus on PEOPLE ...

Design Thinkers have understood that ultimately all solutions in the corporate world are about people. That is why we at hrdiamonds as human resource management specialists like this method so much.
