I'd like to write here about our research at the University of Canterbury where at the School of Health Sciences, we have been designing and running workshops on design thinking in education and health. In these workshops, we are systematically examining how design thinking can lead to experience of the state of "Flow" among players. But more specifically, our approach to design thinking has involved a blending of the core principles of design thinking…Continue

It's been very busy the last few months. Heck... it's been busy the last few years.
And even though I feel like we just started exploring service design & design thinking I also just recently realized that we have been at it for quite a few years now. Are we still pioneers... explorers? Or are we turning into the establishment. No. I don't think we are there yet. Thank god. I would hate to stop being an explorer.
We have been testing our hypothesis on the value of a…Continue

The room was slowly filling up with the employees. One after the other they took their seats and didn’t look too pleased: the speech that I was about to be holding did interrupt the longed-for transition from their dinner to a well deserved drink at the bar! So this left me with the task to ensure that those snaring away during my talk would not animate the others to follow suit.…Continue

I am writing this post because I am curious about the status of the early Service Design community, the pioneers of Service Design.
Tell me! How are you doing? What is the general feeling of what you’ve accomplished and where you are heading?
It has been 10 years or so since a new group, a new generation of professionals, started to develop and work within the field of what they called Service Design. These people, some just graduated, entered a field…Continue

As part of the DesignThinkers Group US launch event I gave a talk about Continuous Innovation.
The talk was (and is) meant to trigger a conversation on innovation. There are many different opinions on this topic, and it has many dimensions I do not cover in this talk. But hopefully there is enough in it to agree or disagree with and I want to invite you to share your thoughts and opinions.
Before taking on any project or problem, a Design Thinker has to analyze the situation to try to…Continue
