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. They listen, they nod their heads enthusiastically, but their lack of confidences is a genuine killer. Missing information and extreme ambiguity transforms into a drive to analyze everything to death. Design… Continue

Are you tired of attending design conferences? Do you miss productive and sustainable sessions? Do you wish for inspiration that has an impact on your work and vision?
Then you should consider attending the “Design at Business” conference 2016 in Berlin.
It is not just about design, not just for designers, but rather addresses all design-minded people wishing to work… Continue

Design thinking teaches us to observe situations without bias, understand context of operations, think of multiple means to impact the users' experience and select the ones that are most likely to succeed within the constraints we have.
That's my paraphrasing of the process after studying various models proposed by IDEO, Luma and the Darden School of Business.
The key to the process is to observe situations in their entirety,…

As human-centred design enters all facets of industry vernacular and we buoy up the sales of post-it notes globally I kindly ask you to stop to pause for one moment and reflect.
Imagine a 16-year-old… Continue

Is the term ‘participation economy’ just a way in which brand strategists and marketers engage with a generation consumed by their world of abundance or a frame from which to design a new future? Whilst I tiptoe around my near non-existent knowledge of economics, I consider the many contexts we see this play out in. With the millennial generation before us and a generation at their heels that will consist of multiple sub-generations not constricted by a label, we see a product of a rapidly… Continue

I’m on the exciting journey of connecting with new and interesting people having recently relocated to Tokyo for my Husband’s job. Moving to a new country where of course most people’s first language is not English, presents interesting challenges across the ‘settling in’ requirements.
One challenge it has uncovered is my need to adjust my reliance on jargon when speaking in a professional setting. Whilst this is something I consciously practice when speaking to different audiences it… Continue

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

She was really enthusiastic about an official non-profit-project called “Design Thinking in Brazil”. They are organizing it with the co-operation of a group of coaches and certified Design… Continue

Design Thinking is a creative method that can serve us for solving complex problems within our own company. The success of this method consist in achieving better results with a multidisciplinary team which is focused in different kind of fields instead of one or more professionals with the same profile. It’s based on the idea that each professional can… 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.…

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
