We host a roundtable for students on #DesignThinking at UNC-Chapel Hill next week! | Dialogue | Scoop.it

Starting to look around for good articles to comb through for next Wednesday's conversation table with University of North Carolina students on "Design Thinking."

 

According to Mark Dziersk's article in Fast Company, the methodology commonly referred to as design thinking is a proven and repeatable problem-solving protocol that any business or profession can employ to achieve extraordinary results. "Define the problem. Sounds simple but doing it right is perhaps the most important of all the four stages. Another way to say it is defining the right problem to solve."

"A couple of years ago, big infographics with little substance were able to draw in lots of visitors because they were something new to look at. However, now these sort of infographics draw backlash. You have to put in the time to think about the story you want to tell and show some actual insight:" Nathan Yau on infographics, Smashing Magazine.

Ask good questions before the #hire How to hire the perfect fit | Dialogue | Scoop.it

“I don’t think we’re either asking the right questions or putting candidates through a process that tests enough for fit,” David Kincaid says. 

 

This article talks about how the CEO of Toronto-based branding company Level 5 says it suffers from too much turnover, especially among senior staff who don't mesh with its corporate culture.

 

We think they need better dialogue, *before* the hire's made.

Listen for the unexpected

Tip: listen for the unexpected by being open. In Dialogue and the Art of Thinking Together, author William Isaacs says: 'We are closed to hearing the unexpected from others, cutting ourselves off from honest exchanges that leave us enlightened and inspired to take action. This is the antithesis of dialogue.'

Ask tons of questions, especially at the start | Dialogue | Scoop.it

“They do not provide answers, they ask questions." Experts on how to think about your career give tips on starting with a blank page and questionnaire. This is about the setup of thinking about a problem, before actually strarting to *do* things. That's exactly what we like to focus on here at Orangutan Swing: preparing for brilliant outcomes by staging great upfront dialogue. Stuff like that and other insights in this article by Harvey Scachter in the Globe and Mail.
