    • Linear thinking divides the problem into smaller sections, addressing each one independently.
    • The search for the best solution starts with the user’s needs and behavior in the search for design thinking.
    • With a focus on interactions and relationships between things, systems thinking adopts a more comprehensive perspective.
  • We place a lot of emphasis on linear thinking as a society. The author believes that the key to the most effective solutions lies within all three types combined.
