Understand IBM Design Thinking in 10 minutes

IBM Design Thinking is a powerful approach to innovation and brand differentiation that is focused on creating positive user experiences. IBM Design Thinking starts by bringing together a series of traditional design techniques, such as personas, empathy maps, as-is and to-be scenarios, design ideation, wireframe sketches and minimum viable product (MVP) definition. To these traditional design approaches, IBM Design Thinking adds three core practices: hills, playbacks, and sponsor users.
