Design Bones: Decoding the Correlates of Design Thinking
Mark Schar, Senior Researcher, and Lecturer, School of Engineering at Stanford University

Abstract
Design Thinking is all the rage ... and everyone wants to be one.  But what exactly is "design thinking" and what makes it different from other forms of "thinking"? Studying people/designers that are associated with design thinking reveals some of the core pillars of design thinking behavior, who might inherently have those behaviors and who are likely to develop those behaviors in the course of their academic and working lives.  This raises important issues for the teaching of design thinking and how it might be tracked in student progress.
