  • 1. Take It Home: Apply Design Thinking Ana Carolina B. Silva
  • 2. 1. Introduction List of previous assignments: ● Process! - ● Empathy Map: ● Ideation: ● Prototype and Test:
  • 3. 2. List of Learnings Doing this course was very pleasant! I could learn more about DT and practice it at the same time, as well as interact with other interested people and practice some english. I have learned a lot of things but if I had have to say three of them, I would say: ● Creativity can be practiced! - No matter if it seems difficult, we can engage on a problem to better understand it and put the brain to work on diverse ideas, and there is no invalid idea! ● Uncertainty and constraints are not monsters! - Sometimes, handle constraints and uncertainty is difficult, but constraints are helpful in guiding thought towards solutions keeping viability. Uncertainty is a natural part of innovation process and is important to do divergent and convergent processes towards goods solutions. ● Empathy is essential to develop solutions! - to understand users' needs, imagination is not enough, you need to empathize with them and dive on the problem opened to discover the best solution to fit the problem.
  • 4. 3. Design Thinking Process Empathize Define Ideate Prototype Test ● Problematize ● Drive ● Practice ● Realize ● Listen ● Understand Briefing ● Validate ● Decide ● Think ● Imagine
  • 5. 4. Design Thinking in my world I thought about a list of things that could be changed/improved in different areas of my life: Work School/College Community Home Technology So, I have made an Ideation Map to these items and a reflection.
  • 6. 4. Design Thinking in my world
  • 7. 4. Design Thinking in my world DT is very broad and can be used in many areas, it is sufficient that there is a problem, then DT can be used to solve it, sometimes all its stages, sometimes one or some of them, depending only on the type of problem and its restrictions. Reflection ● DT concerns to better understand a problem deeply to promote compatible solutions, and it is fully adherent to the thought of a company. ● Empathy can almost always be used due to relationship characteristics of listen, understand, agree, disagree. If you don't have empathy, it becomes more difficult.
  • 8. 4. Design Thinking in my world Reflection ● DT explores the ability of people to exercise their creativity. This can be used to solve complex problems in a simple and / or cheap way. Use of DT can increase collaboration amongst people and help to solve both small and big problems. ● Prototyping is a good way to make solutions more realistic, because based on tests and feedbacks, you can know early if it is an appropriate solution or not.
