By now, in today’s scenario of unpredictable causeand-effect links between increasingly hybrid economic systems on a global scale, we should have all become aware of how value is volatile; of how market’s disintermediation is reducing the value itself; of how the competition has turned the offer into a commodity, with a progressive loss of price and, therefore, of value; and of how customer’s hybridization in choosing what and especially how and where to access to a product / service (via digitalization) has moved the value away, or simply that what we considered as “value” is not recognized as such anymore...

This compilation is intended as an active toolkit to support your design thinking practice. The guide is not just to read – go out in the world and try these tools yourself. In the following pages, we outline each mode of a human centered design process, and then describe dozens of specific methods to do design work. These process modes and methods provide a tangible toolkit which support the seven mindsets — shown on the following page – that are vital attitudes for a design thinker to hold.
