Introduction of the design thinking process and the phases of this process

The report is made up for providing some significant information on the design thinking process and the phases of this process, a brief comparison on the personality profile that how it is compared with successful entrepreneur as well as tells about the most important challenges which the entrepreneurs are facing for the growth of the venture.

1. Discuss the concepts of design thinking and its phases.

Answer: Design thinking is a complete process of creating different t ideas that explain the personality and thinking approach of a person. It is a complete process that creates innovations solutions to prototype and test, redefines problems, challenges assumptions and understands the users in a nonlinear and iterative process. The process of design thinking includes five different phases as test, prototype, ideates, define and empathize. In organizations, the teams of design use design thinking to tackle the unknown and non-define problems. In last few decades the process of design thinking becomes more popular, and this has become very successful for many organizations as global organizations with high profile. In a disruptive and innovative way, design thinking improves the world that develops the ability to generate ground breaking solutions (Müller, 2011).

The various Phases of design thinking are given as under; empathize, define, ideate prototype, and test. Empathize is the first stage if thinking process that helps to obtain the understanding of empathetic issues that must be solved during the research for the users. Like design thinking, empathy is crucial to a human-centered design process, and it also prefers to set ideas related to assumptions that obtain the requirement of real needs and users. Define phase means problems and needs of the users related to design. All the information that during empathize is created and gathered should be accumulated in this phase. To explain the core problems of team must be identified in detail by analyzing the observation and synthesize them ineffective way. The problem must be defined in the manner of human-created and in this phase itself, creation of ideas occurs with complete assumptions. The third phase is ideate that explains the new ideas and challenges new assumptions. When the design reached the third stage then designers are ready to develop new ideas according to new strategies. When the information is collected from the first two phases then the new approach of thinking started as the thinking out of box is started according to new techniques. View the problems in a new and innovative way and also identify the innovative solutions created with the problems statement. The fourth phase of thinking design is prototype. It means that solutions of different ideas are created. This phase is also known as experimental phase and basic purpose of this phase to identify the best solution of all those problems identified in the first three stages of the design thinking (Beckman & Barry, 2007). To investigate the solutions of problems generated in the previous phases, the team of designers will develop new and different inexpensive and scaled-down versions of products that help to select the best solution and also provide a variety of products with different alternatives. Fifth phase is test. It means that when the solutions are identified then proper test must be taken to determine the best possible solution. Different evaluators or designers test the complete product and identify the best solution on the prototype phase. Although it is a final phase due to iterative process the whole phases repeat again and again and also redefine the problem for future use. In the process the designers can select the return of previous phase’s method to make further changes and also implement refinement, alteration, and iterations rules on the different solutions to generate better results and outcomes (Tschimmel, 2012).
