Design Thinking For Social Innovation

Design thinking is ideal for social innovation because teams find out the needs of the community they are trying to help before designing a product or service. Involving local groups through all the stages of design thinking can help create positive change. Getting the perspective of the communities you want to help will ensure not only that you are answering the right questions, but that your solutions are solving the challenge, and accessible to the community. Design thinking can help eliminate the ‘why didn’t it work’ part of the innovation process. You will know right away why something is not working because your community will be there, giving you the information you need.
