So what is Design Thinking?
Think of it as a mental upgrade; a piece of ‘mindware’ for teams tasked with assessing, prototyping and testing new ideas in their market, be that for the purpose of a commercial deployment as a for-profit corporation or SME, or to drive intra-organisational change and innovation as a public sector entity, association or NGO.

Design-driven companies such as Apple, Coca-Cola, IBM, Nike, Procter & Gamble, and Whirlpool have outperformed the S&P 500 over the past 10 years by an accumulated 211% in what’s called the Design Value Index—a portfolio of 16 publicly traded companies that integrate design thinking into corporate strategy.
