Design Thinking is in essence the process of thinking like a designer.

It was a term that was made famous by IDEO and their approach at that time to solving problems. The business world did start to take notice, and you would have seen countless articles on Forbes and the Harvard Business Review, about the impact of Design Thinking.

It is an umbrella term which takes a Human-Centric approach to the designing of any product through rapid prototyping and iterations.
