Systems Thinking for Design Thinking.

Authors: John & Jenny Darzentas

This paper presents an initial argument regarding a Systems Thinking based methodological approach to Design Thinking and Praxis. It proposes that the Design problem space should be captured and expressed as a system, in order to use Systems Thinking to help formulate the design brief and subsequent design interventions. In this way, Designers will benefit from a perspective that allows them to deal with situations of complexity. Capturing and structuring the design space as a System can be supported by tools, techniques and methods that are already familiar to designers, the importance is to use them in a new way.
