A Brief History of Design Thinking: How Design Thinking Came To "Be" [P3]

A Brief History of Design Thinking: How Design Thinking Came To "Be" [P3] | Innovation and Creativity | Scoop.it
This is where things get a bit hazy. Design thinking was a realisation through the evolution of different (collaborative) design process methods that were developed to improve and extend design to other areas of practice. Participatory Design. User-Centered Design. Service Design. Meta-Design. Human-Centered Design. Design Thinking.

Design Thinking Made Visible

Integrative Thinking, and its cousin Integrative Innovation, is the disciplined ability of recognizing, orchestrating and integrating the diverse brainpower of cross-disciplinary teams as they grapple with and navigate complex innovation challenges. At its core, Integrative Thinking is about recognizing and respecting the default thinking preferences of individuals regardless of discipline, and how those preferences map to innovation process. Integrative Thinking is also about unlearning old thinking habits and learning new behaviors.

Strategies for Dealing with Wicked Problems

Wicked problems are characterized by a large number of interacting variables and a large number of unknowns, and we cannot convert them into determinate problems in a practically feasible time frame. Framing We cannot actually ‘define’ a wicked problem. Instead, we ‘frame’ a workable problem out of a complex situation. Satisficing If the problem we are dealing with is really a wicked problem, then an optimal solution is unlikely. An optimal solution is unlikely because we cannot completely understand the system. We use our hunches and make assumptions. As an outcome, we do not seek an optimal solution, but we seek a better solution than the existing solutions. Learn and Pivot What ‘learn and pivot’ means for companies, in the context of dealing with wicked problems is that, they should look at their offerings as an experiment to further their understanding of evolving customer needs and changing competitive environment.

What? Design Thinking?

“ It’s no longer enough simply to outperform the competition; to thrive in a world of ceaseless and rapid change, business people have to out-imagine the competition as well. They must begin to think-to become-more like designers.” --Roger Martin, Dean of the Rotman School of Management Design thinking best describes a specific approach to innovation. It is an approach largely ignored by business professionals, educators, and even many designers. It isn't the exclusive realm of designers but a necessary skill that anyone can and should learn to achieve successful innovation. - Design thinking starts with empathy. - Design thinking is multidisciplinary and collaborative. Design thinking applies multiple lenses to a problem. Design thinking synthesises information across multiple disciplines and isn't the realm of a single specialist. - Design thinking is iterative and visual. Ideas are powerful things. Good ideas can make an organisation. Bad ideas can break one. Design thinking is the process that provides context for your innovation efforts. Design thinking enables more successful innovation. "I have always thought design was 98% common sense and 2% aesthetics. It's the same for business except the magic ingredient is vision. Design and business are totally interlinked and one cannot run one without the other." --Sir Terence Conran

Design Thinking for Leaders

What does it take to make great decisions? Great leadership in this age of complexity requires a more sophisticated way to look at organizational challenges. Management thought and practice points to team, collaboration, risk-tolerance, out-of-the-box thinking which pretty much describes the central tenets of Design Thinking. When management theory and design theory intersect, they provide a loose construct for leadership decision making built for our modern complex problems. Organizations are continually challenged with confounding situations that have no obvious correct way forward or solution. The only solution is a novel path through the situation which has no rulebook or guideposts. The complexity leaders face quickly expose decisions based on assumptions drawn from past experiences. Leaders need fresh views with out of the box thinking to wade through these confounding situations. Design thinking requires a team of thinkers supported by an organizational culture of collaboration, experimentation, cross-discipline thinking, integrative thinking, and iterative problem-solving. Leaders need to build this as a core capability embodied in their teams. Design Thinking requires the discipline of these teams to move beyond simple validation of pre-conceived notions and on to lessons learned from iterative experimentation. No one leader will possess all the correct thoughts for an organization nor will they be able to necessarily lead through complex situations alone. The Personality Profile for a Design Thinking Leader: Empathy – An acute sense of multiple perspectives; seeing the entire set of system drivers. Integrative Thinking – An ability to embrace the contradictions inherent in confounding problems. Optimism – A driving need to see a glass as half-full … there is always a solution. Experimentalism – A desire to think outside the box, test the idea, and then go back to the well. Collaboration – Complex systems and problems require multitudes of perspectives. The personality trait of integrative thinking is necessary for Design Thinking. It is the ability to see more than one facet of a complex issue; holding two contradictory conclusions at once while looking at both as the possible right choice or direction.

Turning Design Thinking to Design Doing

Turning Design Thinking to Design Doing | Innovation and Creativity | Scoop.it
Design thinking can be a powerful approach that helps organizations break through their limiting assumptions of what is possible. It creates deep empathy and gets us out of the abstract debate over ideas in meeting rooms, to a place where we can collaboratively create and test tangible concepts. The theory is great, but getting to implementation is often difficult. Why is that?

Design Thinking, IDEO, and Disruptive Business Model Innovation

To be honest, I get a bit bored about the mantra that design thinking will solve the problems of large corporation. ...I have seen several design thinking sessions and I am not impressed at all with the output. The results are very often: More-of-the-Same but with fancier design. The problem with design thinking starts very early in the process with the problem definition phase. And that is where large corporations fail. They define the scope too narrow and than you get nice new things that sustain your current business but not new business models that rock your industry and yourself.

Jaime Sakakibara's curator insight, October 13, 2013 11:48 AM

This presentation explores the concept of Design Thinking, and some of its key elements: design thinking principles, quality of creative mind and the rules of engagement.

 

Design Thinking Principles:

- Innovation

- Inspiration

- Ideation

- Implementation

 

Design Thinking definition

- it brings constraints into harmonious balance

- it’s not just about differentiation, it’s about perverting the norm, it’s about screwing with the way people think, it’s about destroying sacred traditions

- it’s inherently experimental

- it’s inherently flexible

- it identifies unknown or latent needs and desires

- complexity is a great beginning simplicity is the best solution

 

Rules of engagement

- optimism built on trust

- explore the borders

- solve buyers’ problems not sellers’

- we’re in this together

- reward achievements and failures
