Design Thinking is revolutionizing the way we work. The core of Design Thinking methodology is about taking an innovative, collaborative and above all, a human-centered approach to problem solving. It is a tried and tested methodology, but is there anything an Adventist perspective brings to the table to improve upon what has already been done?
