It is an old Chinese saying: one image says more than a thousand words. In my PhD research I came across the need for visualizations for organizations. Nevertheless, what a 'right' visualization is,…Continue

New Dutch book: Design thinking. Radicaal veranderen in kleine stappen

Posted on March 22, 2018 at 0:18 0 Comments

Did you ever notice that although it is easy to explain design thinking to others, it is damn hard to teach it to them? I discovered this on the go, while I was teaching and coaching students, start-ups and management teams. Maybe hard to believe, but the hardest group are students.

1. the belief to what extent 'world' can be analyzed, let alone predicted.

2. the belief to what extent an organization can change the course of events it is part of.

This results into a 2x2 matrix, depicting 4 quite distinct paradigms. Design…

At Oce Technologies, a Canon Group Company, an interesting technological project was started. This aims to close the loop of printing paper in a fundamental way. Technologically this project is well underway, however we are aware it is not just technology. The central question is: will the many millions of users be willing to adapt to this new concept, for the sake of environment? This is not merely a question of choice: the way how Océ enables people to ‘close the loop’ is crucial for the… Continue
