Design Thinking is a relatively new approach to solving problems. In a nutshell, Design Thinking is the ability to combine empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in the generation of insights and solutions, and rationality to analyze and fit solutions to the context. At SAP, it’s changing the way developers build software.
Not long ago, when customers bought SAP software they had to wait months, even years before they could use it at their company. That’s changed with the advent of design thinking at SAP. This approach speeds up the development of technology solutions designed to delight users. At its core is the “developer 2.0”, who bears little resemblance to familiar stereotypes.
Design thinking developers want to know as much as they can about user needs and desires. These developers iterate quickly, in a matter of hours if necessary, and always as part of a new kind of team where the end user rules. Further information on Design Thinking at SAP can be found here.
