Solution Focused Design Thinking

A Practical Session

Jan 29, 2021

Stephanie Hammer

Introduced by Trevor Durnford

Some of the world’s leading brands, such as Apple, Google, Samsung and AstraZeneca, have rapidly adopted the Design Thinking approach. Staff in leading universities worldwide, including Stanford, Harvard, and MIT are teaching Design Thinking. So there is no doubt that this approach is gaining real traction in organisations.

In this video, Stephanie Hammer introduces the fundamentals of design thinking to SF practitioners around the world. Using an abundance of examples and powerful metaphors, Stephanie draws out the overlaps and synergy between Design Thinking and Solutions Focus and how she applies Solution Focus to Design Thinking.

Like many of those who attended this webinar, I was very appreciative of new insights and tools to help in my SF practice and had a much better understanding of Design Thinking principles.
