Design Thinking is a pioneering tactic that combines service or product design with human behavior and at its central, enthusiastic practitioners label design thinking as an ongoing approach of compassion and human opinion.

David Kelley, Founder of IDEO and The Stanford School established and grew Design Thinking later by applying human-centered design to the creation of a mouse for Apple’s new Lisa computer in 1980. Kelley continued spreading the belief that anybody is proficient in unlocking inventiveness. The Design Thinking mindset has subsequently been explored and applied at both large and small organizations.

According to The Stanford d. School, the process includes 5 steps viz., Emphasize, Define, Ideate, Prototype& Test.
