Design Thinking

What is Design Thinking, anyway?

These days, it seems like Design Thinking is everywhere. But really, what is it? Let’s look at a definition.

The CEO of IDEO puts it like this: “Design thinking is a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success.”

Confused yet? Here’s a simpler way to describe it: “Design thinking is an extremely hands-on approach to problem-solving favoring action over discussion.”

Still a pretty broad description.

Here are four ways we implement Design Thinking at Gimelli Engineering. Start with Ping! …makes the idea.

We’ve got this thing – we call it Ping!

We love Design Thinking. But the more complex the problem, the less intuitive the process often becomes.

How do we deal with that fact at Gimelli Engineering? We’ve designed our own process that helps us come up with the best solution – no matter how difficult the problem.

Sustainability is a word often used lately – and it appears to cover an entire range of topics, products, and industries.

And just like any project starts with a thought or an idea, sustainability should start with the first thought. Hence sustainable thinking.

At Gimelli Engineering, sustainable thinking is an embedded part of every development process.

Keep reading to see how exactly we define sustainable thinking and how we apply it in our everyday work.

Ideas are the source of all change.

Getting ideas onto paper is an important first step for execution – but what then?

Extended prototyping is our way to bridge the gap between an idea on paper and a realistic execution with the least amount of effort.

See how we do it:

Good ideas are often the result of multiple brains – and execution with the right team is the alpha and omega of a successful project.

Networking and workshops are crucial parts of our innovation process.
