Design Thinking Research: Taking Breakthrough Innovation by Hasso Plattner, Christoph Meinel, Larry Leifer

By Hasso Plattner, Christoph Meinel, Larry Leifer

This ebook summarizes the result of layout pondering learn conducted at Stanford college in Palo Alto, California, united states and on the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. supplying readers a better examine layout pondering, its innovation tactics and strategies, the ebook covers subject matters starting from tips to layout rules, equipment and applied sciences, to creativity experiments and depraved challenge suggestions, to artistic collaboration within the actual international, and the interaction of designers and engineers. however the subject matters transcend this of their distinct exploration of layout pondering and its use in IT structures engineering fields, or maybe from a administration point of view. The authors exhibit how those tools and techniques truly paintings in businesses, introduce new applied sciences and their features, and reveal how layout considering can impression such unforeseen issues as marriage. moreover, readers will find out how special-purpose layout considering can be utilized to unravel depraved difficulties in complicated fields. pondering and devising thoughts are essentially and inherently human actions – so is layout considering. consequently, layout considering isn't only the results of specific classes nor of being proficient or expert: it’s a fashion of facing the environment and enhancing thoughts, applied sciences and life.

Example text

Eight teams completed snapshots for 9 weeks. There was a ninth team that we excluded from the study because they consisted of only three teammates. The first 2 weeks of the program were filled with introductions and an initial design thinking training. No snapshots were administered because the team projects had not started. The final week of the empathy phase concluded with the entire cohort meeting to share and iterate the initial concepts. Again, participants did not fill out snapshots that week.

They started 7 months ago and have teams from nearly 20 different organizations (including the host company). There are monthly phone calls that were preceded by two in person training sessions. We have participated in the majority of the phone calls and interviewed participants of the training session, though we were not in attendance. Community C: Five organizations self-formed to connect for a regular video conference primarily around the topic of measuring design thinking. These sessions 38 A.

However, two teams do not follow this pattern and it is not clear if they are outliers or not. Another comparison between empathy engagements and creative outputs yields a stronger pattern. Figure 7 illustrates the total number of people engaged with over the last 2 weeks of the empathy phase compared with creative output. This suggests that there might be a correlation between empathy engagements and creative output. The fact that this pattern appears stronger when constraining engagements to the final 2 weeks of the first phase may imply that continuing to practice empathy while developing a POV, generating ideas, and building prototypes has a positive effect on those tasks.
