"Design Thinking is new to me. Rather than the normal collaboration through brainstorming, it emphasizes on getting feedback first from the identified stakeholders via emphatically asking questions. All ideas coming out from it, including crazy ideas, are considered. It will not only help in creative thinking, but also put forward something that may someday lead to a solution."
