Co-Design in Innovation

Co-Design in Innovation | Mind Candy  { interdimensionally } Cubed... It's SO yesterday to be a Square | Scoop.it
Co-design from business to product design solutions is seen as a potential new avenue for breakthrough innovation in design. Co-design is when firms and non-design users jointly design offerings.

 

"Designers' perception of users' inability to co-design concepts may be an ingrained, preconceived notion; however, even when users could add value, designers believe it would not be cost effective to include them. Competition between design firms is fierce and proposals are structured to reduce execution risk with budgets trimmed to the essentials, leaving slim profit margins. The real money to be made in design consulting is in work change orders, when the clients change their assumptions, provisions and/or deliverables. This apparent conflict of interest causes a perverse incentive system and is but one of the many hurdles for the idea of co-design." @Atticus
