In particular, the terminological discussions regarding the concept of design thinking are defined in the results. Also in the results it is shown the connections between the development of creativity and employment; the features of the stages of its use in the education process, the role of design thinking in the formation of creativity are elaborated. In our opinion, design thinking is a principle of joint research that influences the formation of innovative team solutions and the solution of complex problems.
