Leadership Basics Series: Design Thinking


Design Thinking

Developed by David Kelley, the founder of IDEO, design thinking is defined as “a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.” The approach appears well-suited for addressing issues of population health. It can also be a leadership philosophy, and this module provides further detail to support the application of design thinking.
