Capture Knowledge and Make Decisions Transparent in a Design ...

Capture Knowledge and Make Decisions Transparent in a Design ... | design thinking | Scoop.it
In Design Thinking a huge amount of knowledge is produced in a very short time and a lot of decisions are made. As time goes by, the knowledge dissipates and it is no longer clear why certain decisions were made.
Sean Spence's insight:

The individual's experience of a Design Thinking process is complex. It falls to the individual to perform certain tasks including remembering, extending, embedding and sense-making. And these have to be performed in the real world against pressures to revert to old norms and old facts. 

 

Design thinking is experiential.. Exit and followup strategies are just as important as strategies used 'in the room'.

Sean Spence's insight:

I like the irreverence and the asides - which are all in the spirit of the idea he's (sort of) talking about. Purposeful fuzziness.

Dismantling hierarchies

Dismantling hierarchies | design thinking | Scoop.it
Can organizations still function if we dismantle hierarchies? In the social imperative, Jay Cross asked me how can organizations restructure in order to deal with complexity.
Sean Spence's insight:

Working with an organisation that is non-hierarchical I've found that a glass ceiling (on gender but also resulting from other biases) doesn't emerge. Therefore the pathway to being 'CEO' is much more open. Of course in any human system 'in' and 'out' groups can emerge around various factors but in a distributed, multi-nodal organisation the value set that creates 'in' or 'out' is more likely to be oriented around shared values other than gender.

 

For each person in a 'constellation' networked organisation, you have the option of becoming the 'go-to person' around an ability, a skill or a connectedness, that enables influence, reward, development in ways that hierarchical organisations (where 'control' is the main go-to criterion) find impossible or frightening.

 

This makes non-hierarchical organisations more resilient and more likely to simply get better at doing what is needed. They are also more likely to provide career pathways that suit how humans actually grow through life. 

 

... in my view!
