The term integrate is from the 1630s, "to render (something) whole, bring together the parts of," from Latin integratus, past participle of integrare "make whole," from integer "whole, complete," figuratively, "untainted, upright," literally "untouched," from in- "not" (see in- (1)) + root of tangere "to touch."
For design thinking, integrative thinkers exploit opposing ideas to construct a new solution. Integrative thinkers widen the scope of issues in the problem. Instead of “either/or,” integrative thinkers embrace “both/and” and see nonlinear and multidirectional relationships as a source of inspiration, not contradiction. Think about "embracing the mess" to solve business problems.
Embracing the mess, touch the fabric of problems, complete the wholeness
