Abstract: Design Thinking (DT) has found its way into software engineering, promising better requirements elicitation, customer relations, and cohesion within the development team. However, does DT really live up to its promise? This paper reports on the migration of Proaction Technologies towards DT, and empirically evaluates the new DT process through interviews with employees and clients. While DT is able to live up to its promises, its adoption entails paying close attention to the people involved and their mindsets.
