What Aspiring Designers Need to Know About Strategy

What Aspiring Designers Need to Know About Strategy | Design Thinking | Scoop.it

Business strategists can’t agree on how exactly firms make their strategy. The emergent schools of strategy favored by Mintzberg suggest that there is a lot of room for clever designers to surreptitiously impact their client’s strategy through design and design research.

Five top tips for driving innovation in the NHS

Five top tips for driving innovation in the NHS | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
Innovation was marked by the new NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens as a major priority in his maiden speech in post. He said breaking down barriers to driving innovation from organisations inside and outside the health service would be a make or break issue for the future. However, with the negative coverage of the replacement of Choose and Book, it is clear internal and external innovators will need all the help Stevens and others can give them to help cut through red tape and ingrained ways of working. Here are my five top tips on how to establish new, efficient and modern ways of working which de-risk projects, speed up innovation and deliver for patients: Start small and iterateDe-risk your project by experimenting. Don't spend months building a solution in isolation and then expect it to just work. Run experiments, mock up products and test them. Build a small subset of functionality and test it with real patients. Measure what they do. Keep what works and throw away the rest. Repeat. The best products start with the genesis of an idea, which is then refined in the real world to be something greater than its originator could ever imagine. This approach is low risk as little time and money is invested early on. Use data to make decisionsMeasuring what users (patients, clinicians, NHS management and admin staff) do can lead to unexpected insight. Develop project metrics early on and use these to make data-driven decisions about what works on both functionality and design. Design something better that works in contextTo some people innovation is something that has never been done before. A new drug fits into that category. Those innovations spread easily. Whether it is a better drug, a faster procedure, or technology, innovation needs to solve a challenge. For most people this means faster, easier or more convenient. The end result of the original Choose and Book didn't do this as it was cumbersome to use. Listen to patients, spend time on the groundPatients are the soul of the NHS. However, they're often missed when discussing and deploying new technology. Putting the patient first and listening leads to insight. At DrDoctor, our plan to build a smartphone app quickly changed when patients told us SMS and email would be most helpful. We duly built on those technologies first. Anyone serious about innovation in the NHS needs to spend time in clinics, in operating theatres, or anywhere that helps to understand the real challenges faced in the day-to-day running of a hospital. Many inventors have come up with some spectacular tool that solves the wrong problem. The original Choose and Book was an example of this – the system was more difficult than the traditional method of writing a letter, and so GPs understandably didn't want to use it. Only by spending time with the doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants who make up the frontline teams will the real challenges become clear. Solve those, and your innovation will flourish. Be tenacious by using robust products and evidence baseThe road ahead is treacherous. At each stage your innovation will be challenged. The NHS is, rightly, risk adverse. As an innovator, your job is to anticipate and find solutions to roadblocks – information governance, procurement, evidence. Think about any information governance issues that might arise, map the risks and have robust reasons why your product is safe. Have evidence that shows your product can work, demonstrate how it improves patients' lives, outcomes, and saves NHS staff time and money. Share that evidence as widely as you can. Innovation must start on the ground, be proved, and slowly connect the dots, not start at the top and be forced into place. As with any new way of doing things, the bottom line is that users need to feel ownership and see the benefits. Tom Whicher is the founder of DrDoctor

The Evolution Of Strategy - Forbes | Design Thinking | Scoop.it

Today, planning has become even less tenable.   As the speed of business continues to accelerate and technology cycles outpace corporate planning cycles, the false certainty that planning engenders is becoming an impediment to, rather than a tool for, attaining objectives. commander’s intent— a clear and concise statement of goals and the parameters within which they must be met. That’s also the idea behind what management guru Henry Mintzberg calls emergent strategy. In this new age of big data analysis and the Web of Things, information comes at us real time and so does the competition

How Design Thinking Could Help Solve the Skills Gap

How Design Thinking Could Help Solve the Skills Gap | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
"What if I were to tell you that you could learn more about how to solve the skills gap from a dating site than from a quantitative international study? As a systems designer at IDEO, I'm always looking for innovative ways to go about understanding and framing problems. Notwithstanding the conflation of issues found in discussions about a skills gap, if we take it head on as a challenge, 'design thinking' provides a fresh lens and three useful problem solving techniques. What does that mean for the skills gap? No matter how perfectly you design an education system, no matter how perfect the on-boarding and development programs an employer institutes, if you don’t address the human elements on all sides—employee, employer, and educator—you're going to face frustration." | via Good

NHS Diabetes new Innovations Hub launched

NHS Diabetes new Innovations Hub launched | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
NHS Diabetes has launched a new Innovations Hub to showcase innovative and pioneering examples of diabetes care. The idea is to encourage the spread of innovative ideas within the NHS, helping to improve diabetes care and provide a simple and easy-to-use webportal showcasing ideas and models, which could be emulated or adapted for local use. The hub aims to help avoid any 'reinventing of the wheel' and cascade novel ideas throughout the NHS. Short summaries detailing diabetes innovations from across the health service with links and contact details for further information are being collected. The innovations will complement the existing range of our Diabetes Success Stories, which provide a more comprehensive review. The innovations collected so far include: * Warwick: An Integrated IT system * VoyageMD: The Travel companion for Type 1 Diabetes patients * DiAppBetes: Inpatient Diabetes on a SmartPhone * Guildford: Diabetes Educational Tool for Healthcare Professionals * Ninjabetic: Facebook and Twitter as Support Groups for Type 1 Diabetes NHS Diabetes does not take responsibility for the content of each innovation, but is merely providing the means for the exchange of ideas. For more information on the hub please contact Oliver Jelley on oliver.jelley@diabetes.nhs.uk
