All this had been rounded up the year before, in a frenzy of high-speed driving all over the Internet (from Pinterest to UX Lady) we picked up everything we could get our hands on.

Design Thinking: The Ideal Design Space

A new trend among large companies is to set up special rooms solely for the purpose of design thinking, but smaller companies might not have the resources or the need for a dedicated design thinking room. That’s not a problem—almost any room can be transformed for design thinking! The first criterion to take into consideration is the floor space.

Understanding Organizational Stakeholders for Design Success

Since, by definition, stakeholders are those who are impacted by (or have an impact on) the project, their perspectives need to be taken into account in order for a project to be successful. Stakeholders can have positive or negative views regarding a given project, and often don’t agree with one another, making it a challenge to reconcile their varied viewpoints.

Design Thinking Is A Failed Experiment. So What's Next? The decade of Design Thinking is ending and I, for one, am moving on to another conceptual framework: Creative Intelligence, or CQ. I am writing a book about Creative Intelligence, due out from HarperCollins in fall 2012, and I hope to have a conversation with the Fast Company audience on this blog about how we should teach, measure, and use CQ.

Why am I, who at Business Week was one of Design Thinking's major advocates, moving on to a new conceptual framework? Simple.

L'esprit design, Le design thinking change l'entreprise et la stratégie. Tom Kelley & David Kelley. The core argument of Creative Confidence is simple: Everyone can be creative. Those who see themselves as non-creative might bristle at the notion. But David Kelley and Tom Kelley make a compelling case that creativity is innate in human beings — all human beings.

The difference is that some of us recognize the creativity inside, and others don’t. The goal of Creative Confidence, therefore, is not to teach readers how to be creative but instead to guide them in bringing out the creativity within them. Everyone is creative, the authors argue, but not everyone has the courage to be creative, or take action when they should, or know how to start on a project. Many people assume they are not creative simply because they don’t dare to be creative, the authors argue.

Design & Thinking - a documentary on design thinking. Les étapes du Design Thinking.

It has happened to everyone. You spend countless hours producing a beautiful, pixel-perfect comp only to have it rejected by the client because it isn’t what they were envisioning in their mind’s eye. It’s the dreaded “I’ll know it when I see it” curse. You get sent back to the drawing board, your ego and the budget take a hit, and everyone is frustrated by the process. After this happens a few times you realize that getting the client involved earlier in the process can make a huge difference in the outcome of your design presentations. As designers, we often think we have all the answers. And if your client hasn’t been very forthcoming about what they want their new site to look like it’s even harder to hit the mark in one shot.
