2REFLECTIVE REPORT ON WEEKLY BLOGSIntroductionThe methodology that helps all the designers in the world to solve several difficult andcomplex problems is known as design thinking (Bjögvinsson, Ehn & Hillgren, 2012). Thedesigners use this particular methodology for providing relevant solutions for their clients andcustomers. This process of design thinking draws on the intuition, reasoning, imagination andlogic for finding the solutions or the probability of what could be found out. The client isextremely benefitted from this particular process. I had been following my subject of Design ITsince the very first class (Howlett, 2014). My lecturer Professor Jeffery helped me a lot tounderstand the basic concept of design thinking by involving me in several activities. I havewritten blogs on my ten classes of Design IT and this report is a self-reflective analysis of all theclasses.The following report outlines a brief description on the ten classes I have attended ofDesign IT. The ten classes that I have described are the Design IT, various types of models indesign thinking, the art of innovation, changes made in daily life, design thinking tools, joiningthe dots, ethical design research, prototyping, launch, marketing and fundraising (Melles,Howard & Thompson-Whiteside, 2012). The self reflective report describes about my strengthsand weaknesses, that is what are my strengths and weaknesses and how can I improve myself inany aspect. Moreover, the report further contains my action plans.DiscussionDesign IT

Groups were made.We were provided with a paper and all of us wrote a sentence or two about the course. Weselected a specific topic (Razzouk & Shute, 2012). We passed our paper to other groups andeverybody approved our idea of advertising organizations. The knowledge that I gathered fromthis particular class was to think out of the box and understand the basic concept of designthinking and the benefits of design thinking.Various types of Models in Design ThinkingAfter the second class, I was enjoying the subject even more. The best line that I heard inthis class was “People who make things happen, people who watch things happen, people whowonder things happen” (Lammi, & Becker, 2013). I understood the interpretation of this line.My professor made the class extremely interesting, that I was more active in this class. I learntthat there were several different types of models that are involved in the design thinking. Thisprocess is completed by following few steps. The steps are empathize, define, ideate, prototypeand test. If any one of the step is not successful, it is considered to a failure.The Shopping CartWe carried out in the class this small activity. We were shown a video in the class andgroups were made (Viswanathan & Linsey, 2012). We were asked to jot down few questionsfrom the video. It was about a shopping cart, designed and manufactured by IDEO (see photo inblog entry 3, August 3 2017).They actually manufactured in five days. There were teams ofexperts for designing this. The cart had hooks on it sides. The baskets are removable so that theycan be carried separately. A scanner even scans the product for pricing. Another advantage isthat there is a carrier for small babies. It was a prototype, however was sanctioned by
