The Design Thinking method is currently recognized as one of the most effective methods for developing innovation by employee teams. The method was developed at Delft University of Technology and Stanford University. It is used by technology companies around the world - Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Samsung, GE, Siemens, Airbnb, Uber or Spotify.

Design Thinking is a methodology of work of a research-creative nature, which gives tools to get to know people and their current needs in a deeper way. It encourages you to look at the customer or user from a broader perspective – in a more in-depth way and taking into account the relationships in which they participate. It is from these observations that inspiration for completely new products or ideas for development of existing ones are born. The method also provides tools for monitoring how human needs evolve – and today’s rapidly changing market requires such monitoring.
In September 2019, a Harvard Business Review author posited that Design Thinking is a social technology with a positive impact on orchestrating the process of finding innovative solutions (Why design thinking works?).
