This should result in a pile of unstructured research findings.

To make sense of your findings, you want to synthesise your research by applying the following steps:
This should result in a revamped brief that clarifies or details the initial brief or contradicts it.
Once you have a potential solution (or set of ideas), you want to evaluate the final one and the way it needs to be implemented. An agile approach can be used consisting of three steps:
Aim for minimum viable products so that you can see if it solves the initial problem. Thereafter, you should be able to go out with your final solution or product.
The double diamond revamped aims to provide designers with a tool and is based on these ideas.
According to Don Norman, the human centred design process start with:
Various companies and organisations came up with models to provide structure to the process of human centred design (or design thinking.)
The Double Diamond is a structured design approach to tackle challenges in four stages:
The phases are either diverging (open up as much as possible) or converging (condensing or narrowing your ideas).
When you cook a chilli con carne for the first time, you might start off with a recipe that you like. But once you've burned your tongue a few times, you tweak the original recipe to your own needs and taste.
That's why the Double Diamond process, initially released by the British Design Council, is used. This framework has good structure, clarity and dynamics.
As you have deduced the actual question to solve or challenge, you start ideating.
You ought to end up with a small number of ideas to prototype and test to find the best solution.
Creative thinking requires our brains to make connections between seemingly unrelated ideas.
Nearly every person is born with some level of creative skill and the majority of our creative thinking abilities are trainable.
Creativity is a skill that can be improved, let's talk about why—and how—practice and learning impacts your creative output.
A hackathon is an intensive, often software-centric, ideation, prototyping and presentation challenge on known or unknown problems or opportunities.
It is a design sprint-like event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, and others, often including subject-matter-experts, collaborate intensively on software projects”
