We are working on updating the classic Design Thinking diagram to add more circular nature to it and also include the step of decision making from start to the end of loop process.
This should also avoid seeing Design Thinking as a process, but rather as a habit, practice, iterative activity and a self-fulfilling prophecy of a sort.
Decision making is crucial in building successful anything.
In Design Thinking making right decisions is at the top of the mind all the time.
Many people have a tendency to sit on the fence quite a bit.
Deciding will help them to at least move into Design Thinking loop or to make a decision on what to do as an outcome.
Maybe a decision is to build something, put something into action or practice, improve something, or simply to decide to run more Design Thinking the matter to be able to make the right decision.
