GKI’s Design Thinking Training: Human Centered Design as a Mindset

  1. Inspiration is about working to better understand people. During this phase we observe lives, hear desires, connect with root causes, and get curious about finding the opportunities embedded within challenges.
  2. Ideation is when we make sense of everything that we collectively heard and observed, generate ideas, identify opportunities for design, and test and refine solutions.
  3. Implementation is when we bring solutions to life and start testing different ideas (and the components of those ideas) more rigorously. Once we have defined the solution, we can determine how to bring those ideas into reality and how to maximize our impact in the world.
