Organizations can effectively use the Design Thinking framework to solve their customer's problems by following some key steps:

1. Start by gaining a deep understanding of their customers and their needs. Conduct interviews, surveys, observations and gather qualitative and quantitative data to empathize with their experiences. This step is crucial for developing meaningful solutions.  

2. Based on the insights gained from the empathy phase, define the problem or challenge that their customers are facing. Clearly articulate the problem statement to ensure a focused approach to problem-solving. This step help narrowing down the scope and providing a clear direction for the solution.

This involves engaging in active listening, conducting interviews, observations, and surveys to gain empathy for their experiences.
Based on the insights gathered during the empathy phase, organizations should clearly define the customers' problems and pain points. This step involves synthesizing the information collected and reframing it into actionable problem statements.
