Abstract

Design thinking (DT) is referred to as a new paradigm to support innovation. Identifying the fundamental elements of DT may help to characterize it and integrate it with design processes. The aim of this research is to be a first step towards identifying the fundamental elements of DT. After determining element categories, a content analysis with DT methodologies was performed. This work is part of a more comprehensive research, which intends to identify when in the design process DT may support innovation and to insert DT elements in the design process to make it more user-centred.
