What is Design for Delight?
It’s our unique approach to problem-solving and innovation—our not-so-secret sauce that we’re eager to share with you and your students. More precisely, Design for Delight is a set of principles that gives students hands-on experience in creative problem solving. It gives students the tools to identify big unsolved problems, gain customer empathy, run quick experiments with actual customers, test assumptions, pivot if needed, and much more.
Deep Customer Empathy
Create shared understanding, insights, and the motivation to improve the lives of our customers. We gain empathy by observing people where and when they are experiencing pains or problems.
Go Broad to Go Narrow
Focus on what matters most. When we “go broad,” we use our creativity to explore a variety of potential solutions. We “go narrow” by focusing on bold solutions most likely to delight our customers.
Rapid Experiments with Customers
Put our solutions to the test. When we run experiments with real people, we quickly learn what works and what does not, saving valuable time and resources when making our next decision.
