Petra Hegenbart's insight:

High-school students follow a project-based learning project that incorporates problem solving, creative thinking, and communication into real-world applications. Many of these skills are similar to the ones architects and designers use every day as part of the design process, thus yet another practical application of design thinking for non-designers.

Stanford Builds Strong Innovators with New "Design Thinking" Curriculum | Design Thinking Scope and Application | Scoop.it

In design thinking, she says, “It’s not necessarily about the problem. We think that coming up with a problem that you really want to work on is what matters most. Finding the solution has to come later in the process, after you’ve been in the world and really gotten both inspired and engaged.

Innovation is a process.

Every complex product design is subject to constraints and a set of requirements.   Unfortunately, design teams can’t run all the possible scenarios to determine what the best design might look like.  Building hundreds of designs through to prototype would take too long and cost too much.  As a result, complex product designs aren’t optimized – they are typically only incrementally improved.

Exploring visual language in design and art as a way of telling compelling stories. Even though we tend to think of the objects designers create as design, the design practice uses a language of visuals and semantics that is more closely linked to social behaviour than it is to concrete artifacts.

Petra Hegenbart's insight:

It is the quality of the thinking and understanding that gives the underlying value to the outcomes.

Design Thinking And Your Mobile Strategy

Design Thinking And Your Mobile Strategy | Design Thinking Scope and Application | Scoop.it
A lot has been written & discussed about design thinking in product & industrial design, but can it be applied in the development of mobile strategy & innovation?
Petra Hegenbart's insight:

When you don’t know precisely what problem you’re solving, you’ve got what is known as a ‘wicked problem’ on your hands. Wicked because there are too many options, too many possible causes, and too many directions to explore. These problems are extremely difficult to resolve because like a virus, they continue to mutate, opening up even more possibilities that only make matters worse
