Making a Strong Case for Interdisciplinary Thinking to make Service Design Thinking a Stronger Discipline

I have now and then touted Extended Service Design Thinking as a way to make Service Design Thinking a continuing discipline and not die as another FAD

Recently read an article on Harvard Business Review which threw more light on the subject. What is most interesting is that there were quite a number of interesting comments. There was even a comment on Inter disciplinary Thinking

I continue to make a case for involving the Service Design Community in this subject. We need to get an understanding on areas outside our comfort zone. Real opportunity comes from becoming a generalist and being a specialist in quite a few disciplines.

Suggested reading to get a handle on this approach is "Glimmer" by Warren Berger.

Warren writes about Bruce Mau, Dean Kamen, Yves Behar and other great Design Thinkers.

Man does not live on Service Design alone

This is what I think, what do you think?

Comment and get out of your comfort zone, it helps to discuus and go to the next level.

It is interesting to look at opposing views on Design Thinking.
