Design Thinking features increasingly within Enterprise and Management education programmes. Its adoption is piece meal led by what could be described as champions and evangelists. There are nevertheless critics and detractors with accusations that the Design Thinking discipline is not robust and is a ‘simplified’ version of the design discipline. There exists a growing body of resources and how-to guides on what Design Thinking is and how to mobilise it in the classroom. However, despite these resources it is still unclear how Design Thinking is being delivered in the classroom. A number of studies have recognised this gap and have sought to begin formalising knowledge and understanding of Design Thinking pedagogy for non-designers.
