In this episode we examine Natasha Jen's claim that design thinking is bulls**t.
We spoke to Austrial-based Ingrid Gerstbach, Design thinking consultant, author and speaker (site in German but she speaks good English and does work in the UK as well).
Her books are also available for sale on her site.
