In the design thinking framework, the focus shifts towards testing the solution with actual users and implementing it based on their feedback. During this phase, the prototype—whether a early product, service, or strategy—is evaluated for its effectiveness in meeting user needs and expectations. You put the vision into effect and ensure that your solution is materialized and touches the lives of your end users.

You must carefully review feedback to identify any areas needing refinement or adjustment. The ultimate goal is to ensure the solution can be successfully integrated into users’ lives or workflows, providing a meaningful improvement. The solution is refined by iterating based on user input until it is ready for launch, marking the transition from idea to real-world application. This phase is crucial for validating the solution and effectively addressing the user’s needs. You can fine-tune your solutions by continuously seeking user input and incorporating feedback to achieve maximum effectiveness.
