“Welcome to Design Thinking & Beyond: a website, established to foster critical discourse on design thinking and related academic fields.”

Why a website about design thinking? Many consider design thinking as a fashionable and temporary phenomenon, which will pass anytime soon, and using it purely as a methodology might have weaknesses. However, in times of fundamental change new thinking is required.
