Level Seven Design Thinking

Design Thinking

Design Thinking is an approach to solving, complex, ill-defined problems.  What’s different about a Design Thinking approach is that it places end users and their needs at the centre of the problem and any potential solutions.

Design Thinking can be used as an end-to-end methodology for product and service design or improvement but organisations are seeing the benefit of adopting key principles more generally within working life. 

Design Thinking is a structured, facilitated process that is inclusive, collaborative, creative and evidence based.

Level Seven’s Design Thinking value proposition is to help organisations and more specifically functional teams to think differently about their customer value proposition.  Our goal is to help these teams view these challenges from many perspectives, particularly from the end user; customer or employee.
