Drawing on the Dynamic Creativity Framework and Failure Theory, this paper explores what it means to advance domain knowledge with creative ambitions. Failures are analysed as an extraordinary resource in the search for radical innovation. Success-Failure Analysis is suggested as a methodological approach to advance domain knowledge based on outcome ... more >>>

A Short Theory of Failure

Failures are a key concept in design thinking. They are discussed as a resource for learning, whereas fear of failure would be a major block to creative activity. We attempt to clarify the term by reconstructing “failures” as “inconclusive outcomes” in the Dynamic Creativity Framework. This includes a definition of ... more >>>

Manifesto: Design Thinking Becomes Foundational

With the integration of design thinking into engineering education, a missing link has been created between the science-focused, context-independent part of engineering and the human society-focused, context-dependent aspect. The latter area has long been neglected, partly due to the uncertainty that comes with the unpredictability of human behavior. However, years ... more >>>

Building on a Stages of Change Model to Bring Home More Big Design Thinking Ideas

Design Thinking is an approach to creating human-centered product or service innovations, based on a model of problem solving. Regularly, design thinking projects yield exciting visions for a better future. However, up to the present they often fail to impact the world at a larger-scale. In design thinking terminology, one ... more >>>

A Design Thinking Process to Tackle Individual Life Problems (Created for Use in Behaviour Psychotherapy)

The design thinking community has at its disposal a rich pool of teaching material to help students master the process of creative problem solving. We re-designed some of this material for use in a new context: behaviour psychotherapy. Here, patients need to master the process of creative problem solving. In ... more >>>

Let’s Bring Home Even More Benefits from Design Thinking: Ideas for an Iterated Design Thinking Process Model

Design thinking research has provided two good reasons for a revision of the design thinking process model. (a) Prototyping is now considered an important means for facilitating communication in all stages of the design thinking process. Therefore, the “prototyping sign” in current process models is misleading. It seems to suggest ... more >>>

Analyzing Distributed Whiteboard Interactions

Analyzing team work at whiteboards is a time-consuming and error-prone process if manual interpretation techniques are applied. In order to advance this process, we present the digital whiteboard sys- tem Tele-Board, which automatically captures all interactions made on the whiteboard and thus offers possibilities for a fast interpretation of us- ... more >>>
