Rotman Dean Roger Martin on Design Thinking

Rotman School Dean Roger Martin explains why business people don't need to understand designers, they have to become designers. Produced by NeoCon.


Notes from the video: "...Business person trained to analytical thinking to produce reliability. ...The Designer is not so much a consistent outcome, but an outcome they love... Design Thinking is thinking that combines the best of analytical thinking with intuitive thinking... the result of the combination of these two is creativity and longevity."

ghbrett's insight:

This is one of the more succinct descriptions of Design Thinking in Business versus Graphic or 3D or Product Design. Brief, to the point. The process described could result in processes that one usually considers to be "outside of the box." On the other hand the results as described are creative (new & innovative) and have longevity (sustainable & viable). This reviewer plans to look into this line of thinking more for application to online learning and distance teaching. Design Thinking for Education.
