The Design Thinking Framework
On the left is a generic Design Thinking framework that we would be using as reference for the conduct of the InnoFest.
We would be starting out with the EMPATHY & DEFINE stages on Day 1 and 2 of the competition, before moving on to the IDEATE & PROTOTYPING stages on Day 3, culminating in the TESTING stage on the final day.
We would also be adding in another stage, REFLECTION, for all participants to consolidate their learning throughout the 4 days/1 night competition.
