Dear Mike, Janet, and colleagues

I find the following distinctions useful when considering the  
differences and similarities between purposeful thought, design  
thinking, and creative thinking.

Purposeful thought  is primarily concerned with the pursuit of goals  
within a familiar context guided by prior experience or learning -  
riding a bicycle, solving a puzzle, expressing or interpreting a  
thought, etc.

Design thinking applies the mental capabilities required in purposeful  
thought to address needs and desires arising from a focal situation in  
order to improve the situation, subject or artifact.

Creative thinking extends design thinking by applying unusual  
strategies to modes of thought to seek a novel, significant, and  
valued revisioning of the focal situation, subject, or artifact.

In this view, Design Thinking, and Creative Thinking build on and  
enrich Purposeful Thought, using its underlying structure in new ways  
to solve, resolve, and create. This structure is outlined in A Theory  
of Design Thinking, a short paper available on academia.edu, and on  
the website idesignthinking.com
