Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity

Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity | Pourquoi's innovation and creativity digest | Scoop.it

Systems thinking is a holistic form of understanding, analysis, and problem solving. It's also a way to bring balanced, more impactful solutions to our businesses and social challenges. But what about design thinking?

Design thinking involves using design methodologies to address all of our important inquiries. There is an emerging notion of human-centered design brought into our consciouness by IDEO, the design firm in Palo Alto, California. In this form of design, we involve the recepients in the design process focused primarily on their needs. It sounds simple but most conventional design methodologies consider the needs of humans as an input, but not as the purpose of the design and much less involve them in the process.

Can we use design thinking to guide our evolution? Can design thinking help us build our global and sustainable future as a species. Is this type of thinking broad and deep enough that can tackle the biggest challenges that we have as civilization?

Companies are finding it hard to churn out “the next big thing.” Instead of the disruptive products, services and business models of yesteryear, innovations coming to market today are typically line extensions.

Thanks for sharing!
Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, August 10, 2013 9:14 AM

"You won’t find these functions described in job descriptions, nor will you find someone with a title like “risk-taker.”  You won’t find these roles being incentivized, or formally evaluated or even recognized, as a rule.   Like many aspects of an innovation culture, they happen – serendipitously – or they don’t.  And because the roles are elusive and difficult to measure, they can go unappreciated and unnoticed.  And then they gradually fade away.

 

But if you look hard in your organization, trust your own judgment, and use your best observational skills, you can find, nurture, and acknowledge these key individuals and keep their critical skill sets alive . . . and growing."
