FRee DOwnload: Design thinking questions checklist
Questions to Ask for Better Innovation
One of the hallmarks of design thinking is a mindset of curiosity. We continuously ask questions about what we know and what we should do next.
Whether we do it to verify our own assumptions, or to take a step back to look for hidden opportunities — asking questions lets us avoid jumping to obvious solutions and keep an open mind for further exploration.
Even if your team isn’t employing design thinking just yet, this initial list can help both inform and elevate your current creative process. play with it, and add your own questions — find ways to keep your mind open to new possibilities.
WHY DESIGN THINKING?
We teach design thinking as a method to help organizations cultivate a human-centered culture that encourages original ideas, tackles complex problems, and uncovers extraordinary new solutions. Our process has its roots in our work as pioneers of the original design process at IDEO, and embraces an attitude we live by: Innovation Made Personal.
