The Good Kitchen case study

Examine this case study to discover how the implementation of the design thinking problem-solving process changed how people approached the problem.

Now that we’ve explored some more principles of design thinking, let’s explore a case study that brings them to life.

Share your thoughts

Use this opportunity to reflect on the following question: how did the implementation of the design thinking problem-solving process change the way people approached the problem?
After viewing the video, apply your learning so far by identifying how the designers applied the seven principles from the previous step.
How did the designers:
  • Apply the human rule and understand the needs and behaviours of their users?
  • Embrace the ambiguity rule and accept the obscurity of the problem?
  • Acknowledge that “all design is redesign”, hunting for insights that help reframe the problem?
  • Follow the tangibility rule and create prototypes?
  • Demonstrate curiosity about the issues?
  • Use creativity throughout the process?
Share your reflections on these questions in the comments.
