"Joanna, One thought that I have, in addition to the other great responses you received, is that in the future the notion of Design Thinking as a discipline in it's own right will disappear. The concepts, methods and approaches that currently…"

"Johanna, You're probably done your paper, so this is more of a pointer for future readers. Debates around design thinking that I haven't seen mentioned in this thread. 1) most designers aren't design thinkers, because most designers…"

Joanna Montgomery replied to Joanna Montgomery's discussion The Debate About Design Thinking
"Thank you very much for your comment. The more I research, the more I realise that Design Thinking has been practiced for many years - such as by Josiah Wedgwood when he created a production line. It is rather odd how so many people are skeptical…"

"Joanna, I usually like to give an example to answer your question. I am quoting from one of my blogs I recently came upon the following definition of Design Thinking in Wikipedia. Define, Research, Ideate, Prototype, Choose, Implement,…"

"Andy Polaine asks, "Does it make sense to try and measure a customer's emotional connection with a company in any kind of numerical or financial way? No -- of course not. Any numbers produced will be false. But do we have affective…"

Andy Polaine replied to Joanna Montgomery's discussion The Debate About Design Thinking
"Good points and that integration or synthesis is key, whatever background you have. The attention to metrics is one of the issues facing any designer engaged with a business focused project. Metrics are useful, but they're only useful when…"
