It's Time to Bring Empathy Out of The Closet As A Professional Skill • Jeff Giesea | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
I recently completed the first leg of executive-coach training, as reviewed in my last post. My aim was to develop new leadership skills before diving into my next business venture. As it turns out, the skill I needed to improve the most was...
Arty Rivera's insight:

I like that instead re-hashing the erroneous stereotype that one's *capacity* for empathy is governed by one's gender, this post focuses on the role that gender identity plays in shaping one's *attitude* towards empathy as part of a professional toolset.

“Design Thinking and Making” class at Claremont Middle School encourages students to think outside of the box

“Design Thinking and Making” class at Claremont Middle School encourages students to think outside of the box | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
A middle school hallway with its long, lonely corridors often serves as the typical wandering place for a troubled kid. At Claremont Middle School in North Oakland, students are fed up with the perception of hallways in their school.
Arty Rivera's insight:

“We’re able to relate to an issue in a place, and then we’re able to fix that issue and create new questions.” That's a SIXTH-GRADER talking. Imagine the possibilities if we taught all children to be this confident, and they learned that they can affect the environment around them.

3-D printing adds new dimension to business innovation | NetworkWorld.com

3-D printing adds new dimension to business innovation | NetworkWorld.com | Design Thinking | Scoop.it

3-D printing may have an image problem. It's sometimes seen as a hobbyist pursuit -- a fun way to build knickknacks from your living room desktop -- but a growing number of companies are giving serious thought to the technology to help get new ideas off the ground.

 

That's literally off the ground in aircraft maker Boeing's case. Thirty thousand feet in the air, some planes made by Boeing are outfitted with air duct components, wiring covers and other small, general parts that have been made via 3-D printing, or, as the process is known in industrial applications, additive manufacturing. The company also uses additive manufacturing with metal to produce prototype parts for form, fit and function tests.

 

Whether it's the living room or a corporate factory, the underlying principle of 3-D printing -- additive manufacturing -- is the same. It's different from traditional manufacturing techniques such as subtractive or formative manufacturing, which mainly rely on removing material through molding, drilling or grinding. Additive manufacturing instead starts from scratch and binds layers of material sequentially in extremely thin sheets, into a shape designed with 3-D modeling software.

 

Boeing has been conducting research and development in the area of additive manufacturing since 1997, but the company wants to scale up its processes in the years ahead so it can use the technology to build larger, structural components that can be widely incorporated into military and commercial aircraft.
