Design Thinking = Testing Thinking?

Tim Brown wrote a great article in the HBR on Design Thinking. You can't normally get HBR articles unless you subscribe, but IDEO has posted the article on their website.

In the article there is a sidebar on "A Design Thinker's Personality Profile." It covers empathy, integrative thinking, optimism, experimentalism, and collaboration. If you read the short descriptions Tim offers for each, I think you'll see strong parallels to software testing.

I did.
