Design Thinking Is Fundamentally Conservative and Preserves the Status Quo

Design Thinking Is Fundamentally Conservative and Preserves the Status Quo | Conetica | Scoop.it
When it comes to design thinking, the bloom is off the rose. Billed as a set of tools for innovation, design thinking has been enthusiastically and, to some extent, uncritically adopted by firms and universities alike as an approach for the development of innovative solutions to complex problems.  But skepticism about design thinking has now begun to seep out onto the pages of business magazines and educational publications.

Does Collective Impact Really Make an Impact?

Does Collective Impact Really Make an Impact? | Conetica | Scoop.it

Collective impact tends to generate strong reactions. Mention it, and the person across from you will likely either extol its virtues or roll their eyes. Introduced in a 2011 SSIR article, the approach to social change came onto the scene and quickly became a buzzword and philanthropy darling. For some, it offered structure and clarity about how to operate complex, multi-sector social change processes that can otherwise feel opaque and intangible. For others, not so much.

Is good design elitist?

Is good design elitist? | Conetica | Scoop.it
This principle—that the more we invest concern in particularly meaningful objects, the less our world will be awash in disregarded trash—has often been used as an argument in favor of craftsmanship. People will gladly reuse expensive handmade cutlery again and again, whereas they don’t think twice before chucking out plastic forks and knives. In general, the more well-made an item is, the more care has gone into it, the more likely it is to persist. Ideally it will last a whole lifetime and even get handed down from one generation to the next.

Video: Watch a real urban planner build a town in SimCity | Conetica | Scoop.it
SimCity is one of the greatest video game franchises of all time, if only because it demonstrates something important: Designing a city from scratch is very hard, and it’s impossible to make everyone happy all the time. That’s even more evident thanks to UC Berkeley PhD student Dave Amos, who studies urban planning and whose commentary on the game offers a hilarious criticism of both game design and planning bureaucracy.

Re-defining Corporate Behaviors and Norms Through More-Holistic Assessment

Re-defining Corporate Behaviors and Norms Through More-Holistic Assessment | Conetica | Scoop.it
An ESG assessment needs to go beyond risk avoidance, and take into account both business model and corporate strategy. Ultimately, ESG should move toward encouraging companies to adopt a shared value approach, carefully weighing how companies are providing value to society while also providing long-term returns to their investors. So how do we start to develop a more holistic view of ESG? I don’t have all the answers, but drawing on my experience, I propose that good ESG evaluations consider the following four practices:
