• design thinking is bottom-up strategy: you start with a broad viewpoint and a profound understanding of human behaviour to craft and shape opportunities, ideas and solutions. You derive your strategy from this understanding• design thinking is a dynamic process, and less about steps• design thinking is gaining insights through rapid prototyping• design thinking seeks to find (new) meaning of things, create new stories• design thinking is making complicated things simple• design thinking is agile strategy: deepening the strategy often emerges after prototyping.

People are most likely to need nudges for decisions that aredifficult, complex and infrequent and when they have poorfeedback and few opportunities for learning
