My latest blog: the unbearable lightness of designthinking. It considers 4 contesting paradigms / woldviews on innovation, based on a famous model of Daft and Weick (1984). These paradigms can be explained alongside two axes:
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 thinking is an enacting apradigm. It beliefs the world can not really be understaood nor predicted, but it is possible to intervene the course of events. It emphasises 'doing' and reflecting. However, as in this blog is explained, it is often considere 'naive' as it seems to forget or even denounce 'hard quantitative' data.
