Software engineering is a systematic set of activities which leads to the development of software solutions of the user’s requirement. In today’s information era, there is a need to fulfill the user’s requirements quickly in a swift and systematic manner, which is done through agile development methodology. Design thinking facilitates the software development team not only to identify the explicit requirements but also the implicit requirements very keenly. This paper introduces the new framework—Intelli-A, which inherently maps the design thinking approach in agile methodology.
