Resumo: The difficult task of innovation is a key facet of Research & Development (R&D) institutions. Innovation is also closely related with processes oriented to achieve solutions in design. By addressing this topic, we propose to research new emerging design methods and provide an overview of design thinking tools that can be applied in an early stage of the R&D research process in order to produce meaningful results. This research presents a set of experimental guidelines and an analysis method for the application of these tools. In particular, it is taken into account that design, through design thinking, extends to the experience that costumers/users have with products, services, spaces or even multidimensional experiences, which is a relevant input for R&D innovation development. It is well known that design has changed its scope beyond the conception of artifacts: Design thinking methodologies have resulted from the advancement of current design paradigms. However, design thinking is not a new design discipline. It is a fresh multi-disciplinary platform that utilizes conceptual tools in order to provide steps towards innovation. In fact, the establishment of coherent guidelines for the design thinking process is a very complex task, due to its interdisciplinary requirements, that convey many diverse mindsets. The main focus of this study is creating an analysis toolkit that enables non-specialist and specialist users to perform high-quality design production. This methodological tool is being applied in the framework of two research centers, namely, the Research center for Science and Technology of the Arts and the Telecommunication Institute of Oporto University. These trials provide valuable pilot studies in order to determine the efficiency of this ‘mind map’ in the R&D innovation process.
