Mais aussi parce que documenter ses méthodes de conceptions internes est la meilleure preuve de la qualité d’un service ou d’un produit. Ce qui est bien fait également, c’est d’avoir adapté les méthodes de design thinking en fonction du contexte d’entreprise. Ce document se positionne comme un vrai guide de travail pour tous les employés d’IBM, du moins pour les principes fondamentaux du design thinking. La logique utilisée par IBM est calquée sur la logique initiale du design thinking, cependant ils ont su l’adapter par rapport à leurs besoins et fonctionnements.

On remarque d’ailleurs que le document est actuellement la v3.4, un clin d’oeil au principe que « tout est prototype ». Interaction Design Foundation. Design Thinking is a design methodology that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. It’s extremely useful in tackling complex problems that are ill-defined or unknown, by understanding the human needs involved, by re-framing the problem in human-centric ways, by creating many ideas in brainstorming sessions, and by adopting a hands-on approach in prototyping and testing. Understanding these five stages of Design Thinking will empower anyone to apply the Design Thinking methods in order to solve complex problems that occur around us — in our companies, in our countries, and even on the scale of our planet. We will focus on the five-stage Design Thinking model proposed by the Hasso-Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford ( is the leading university when it comes to teaching Design Thinking.

The five stages of Design Thinking, according to, are as follows: Empathise, Define (the problem), Ideate, Prototype, and Test. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Design Kit. Resources. The resources page is a place for learning.
