Design Thinking DC is an action-oriented community of innovative change makers who come together to share knowledge and experience in order to solve complex problems.

Inspired by the human-centered design movement, we connect people from all professional backgrounds who seek to make the world a better place through community-based problem solving.

Here are a few resources, if you're looking for a more comprehensive written introduction to the topic, with present-day context:

    Wikipedia page on design thinking

    "Design Thinking... What is that?" -- a 2006 Fast Company article.

    The Stanford University Institute of Design (d.school)'s perspective on innovation -- some of the methodologies we use were created or popularized by the d.school or IDEO, however, we as a group are open to examining and practicing innovation in many different ways.

    "The Business of Design Thinking" -- a 2013 article in Harvard Magazine featuring the formative story of the Harvard xDesign conference.

    The Design Thinking trove -- an actively curated news feed, which you can follow to receive your choice of timely notifications or email updates.

We look forward to robust discussions on the topic!
