In Design Thinking, There Never is a Perfect Solution
Bernhard Keim, Premium Member
Here are few comments on the steps in Design Thinking mentioned in the summary text:
Ad 1. If the problem is not really understood it is hard to design a solution. William Peña wrote a useful approach for architects - Problem Seeking* - that can be used for most design processes.
Ad 3. Ask why, ask why, ask why this is a problem, is a superior solution etc.
Ad 4. Prototyping could be expensive, but it's far less expensive than a bad, premature solution.
Ad 5. To choose means to decide. Every decision is limited rationale. Restrictions define the solution space.
Ad 7. There is never a perfect solution. There are only worse and better ones. It is better to provide the best solution for a clearly defined audience, than a solution that tries to make everyone happy (e.g. Porsche).

* there is a current version available on Amazon etc.
