 Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. -Steve Jobs

If we go with the words of Steve Jobs, then certainly, developers are the real designers of a software product, as no one else but a developer knows how a product actually works.

But, does that mean that developers should design a product? Well, not exactly. It just entails that developers have an important role to play in a good design process. And thus, developers need to combine software product engineering with design methodologies. This is where Design Thinking can help.

Design Thinking is a problem-solving approach to software development. By involving brainstorming, iterations, prototyping, testing into the process, design thinkers challenge assumptions and redefine perspectives. In short, it is a way to deliver a fine-tune product, powered by innovation; products that users love to use.

The infographic shared below explains how design thinking works, elaborating its attributes, and how it can assist in innovative product development.
