Tom and David Kelley being interviewed at Google about innovation, design, IDEO and their book Creative Confidence

In this interview Tom and David Kelley from IDEO inspire me with their sharp thinking about design. They talk about experiments, behavioral economists, bush fires and guided mastery.

Empathie als design-tool

Inlevingsvermogen is wat mij betreft één van de allerbelangrijkste eigenschappen bij het ontwerpen van interactie. Dit is nog meer van toepassing naarmate steeds meer digitale interactie mobiel is.

Dat de context van één plek voor iedereen anders kan zijn en dus effect heeft op de gebeurtenissen laat deze video van de Cleveland Clinic treffend zien.

Design vs numbers

Why a design perspective helps building a better company, Design Thinking Starts At The Top

The late Bill Moggridge, director of Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, made an important point when he discussed how companies will readily employ business management consultants to study and suggest organizational change from a numbers standpoint, but then fail to follow through on that change with a visual representation of it.

Moggridge went on to say, “I think that’s where design has a fresh opportunity to be influential because, as designers, we know how to create a prototype of some example that illustrates that change. We can show something. We can show an experience. We can show a design solution, and that’s much more real to the management who are receiving the input than the realistically dry report.”
