What is Design Thinking?

Design Thinking is a collaborative and user-centered approach to complex problem-solving. But why is it such a buzzword at the moment? You will get a short introduction to Design Thinking and run through a one and a half hour hands-on exercise, that gives you a glimpse into the method and mindset.
