Design Thinking Practice in Organizations

Maria Serra, Onclaude Founder November 5, 2015

In 2014 we have participated in a study on Design Thinking's impact on organizations by a group of HPI-Stanford Design Thinking Research fellows. The outcome of this research, a study called "Parts Without a Whole? - The Current State of Design Thinking in Organizations", which has been just published, raises some interesting issues on the topic.

Maureen Carroll, founder of Lime Design and lecturer at Stanford’s Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school), explains why the Design Thinking approach can be challenging in a fast-paced solution-driven environment and what it takes to make it really work in the corporate as well as in the education sectors. Individuals have to begin using design thinking, she says, and their efforts have to be both supported and championed within their organization.
