We created the Design Thinking Toolkit as an intuitive toolbox for people looking to apply design thinking to a wide variety of challenges after a workshop or training programme.
The toolkit provides a series of method cards that guide teams on applying the broad array of tools design thinking offers, whether it’s for planning an excursion to get customer insights or thinking about quick ways to prototype a service.
Process cards help teams get unstuck and move their project towards prototyping and executing their innovation.
