The Wondrous Design Magazine Measure of an Innovator: The Innovator ... | Experience SAP HANA Every once in a while, great products come along that change our lives. Products that move us, change our behavior, even our way of thinking. Products that are beautiful, appealing, intuitive, that connect with us emotionally. Products that are well engineered, well designed and that create tremendous economic value for companies. Companies big and small manage to bring such great products to life, albeit infrequently. Indeed big companies, in particular, tend to get remarkably worse at this as they grow bigger. At SAP, I have been reflecting on HANA's amazing success. My conclusion: the essence of this experience, its distillation, lies in Design Thinking. Over and over again during the development of HANA and in its early days, and now having led its early adoption and many amazing successes, I have seen firsthand that design-thinking, with these three dimensions, is at the heart of product success. So here goes: I further argue that: Design Thinking argues for T-shaped people.

RELIC NYC Estúdio Híbrido Palimpsest – Collective memory through Virtual Reality / @ialab Created at the Bartlett School of Architecture / Interactive Architecture, Palimpsest uses 3D scanning and virtual reality to record urban spaces and the communities that live in them. The project aims to question/test the implication if the past, present, and future city could exist in the same place, layering personal stories and local histories of the city at a 1:1 scale. In 1998, researchers discovered that mathematical proofs by Archimedes had been overwritten with biblical texts by monks in the 13th century. Documents such as this, with previous erasures still visible beneath the primary text, are known as palimpsests. Architecture can also be a palimpsest: as cities and buildings are modified and re-purposed, traces of their previous lives remain visible. Their first initiative, The Camden Palimpsest, uses the UK High Speed Rail 2 project as a case study. In order to create the palimpsest, the team relied on 4 types of 3D data capture.

Transport | Priestmangoode - Product, Transport and Environment Design Moving Platforms is a concept for the future of rail travel. We have been designing high speed trains around the world for a few years now. Our experience of various systems has led us to conclude that it is hugely inefficient to run a new 21st century high tech, high speed train service on a 19th century infrastructure that was invented for steam trains. As a result, Paul has come up with an ingenious solution that can potentially revolutionize the rail industry the way the internet revolutionized the way we communicate. Moving Platforms is a totally inter-connected rail infrastructure where local trams connect to a network of non-stop high speed trains enabling passengers to travel from their local stop to a local address at their destination (even in another country) without getting off a train. ‘I’m under no illusion this is a big idea’ says Paul, ‘but we have to think big.

Design Kit: The Human-Centered Design Toolkit In April 2015, launched an exciting new evolution of the HCD Toolkit the Field Guide to Human-Centered Design. The Field Guide is the latest in’s suite of teaching tools and a step forward in sharing the practice and promise of human-centered design with the social sector. A full-color, 192-page book, the Field Guide comes with 57 design methods, the key mindsets that underpin how and why believes design can change lives, a full slate of worksheets, and case studies from projects that show human-centered design in action. The Field Guide was funded by more than 1300 backers in a Kickstarter campaign that reaching nearly three times its initial goal. is a nonprofit design organization that launched out of IDEO in 2011 with a mission to improve the lives of poor and vulnerable communities through design.

Architecture for Humanity OpenIDEO Planejamento Estratégico Planejamento Estratégico Por Waldyr Gutierrez Fortes Independentemente do estágio de desenvolvimento de uma organização, as empresas passam a empregar, para resolver os seus problemas técnico-econômicos, o Planejamento Estratégico, que compreende a “análise racional das oportunidades oferecidas pelo meio, dos pontos fortes e fracos das empresas e da escolha de um modo de compatibilizar a estratégica entre dois extremos, para que se possa satisfazer do melhor modo possível os objetivos da empresa”.[1] O sistema de Planejamento Estratégico[2] representa uma postura cuja essência é organizar, de maneira disciplinada, as maiores tarefas da empresa e encaminhá-las para manter uma eficiência operacional nos seus negócios e guiar a organização para um futuro melhor e inovador. A ação de planejar pressupõe seis pontos básicos: As turbulências ambientais levaram as empresas a perceber alguns itens específicos: Figura 1 Processo Formal de Planejamento Estratégico de Negócios Figura 2

XS architecture vs XL furniture by Worapong Manupipatpong | Dezeen Thai graduate designer Worapong Manupipatpong has created an installation that is halfway between furniture and architecture. The two-level, wooden structures have small ladders leading to their upper platforms and form various places to sit. Manupipatpong built the structures for his graduation project while studying at Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Sweden. "This project is about investigation between the notion of architecture and furniture design," says the designer. "I try to explore another area, where this object is somewhere between these two category, architecture and furniture design." Here's some text from Manupipatpong: XS architecture vs XL furniture The scale in-between The manipulation of space, form, colour, texture and issues about material and gravity are common to architecture and furniture. I’m intrigued by particular spaces and things when they can’t be classified exactly; something in-between.

Inovação através do modelo de negócio Tenho visto que o tema Modelo de Negócio tem recebido grande destaque ultimamente, seja através de livros (Business Model Generation, de Osterwalder e Pigneur; Getting to plan B, de Mullins e Komisar) artigos na internet, palestras e matérias em revistas especializadas (a Harvard Business Review dedicou toda uma edição a este tema). A despeito do crescente interesse, poucos textos são esclarecedores sobre o que exatamente são modelos de negócios e qual sua importância para empreendedores. Aqui vai minha contribuição para enriquecer o assunto. O melhor texto que já vi sobre este tema é de Joan Magretta e Nan Stone. O capítulo “A importância dos modelos de negócios”, do livro “O que é gerenciar e administrar” - a primeira edição é de 1987 - já falava deste assunto. O tema pegou fogo com o ‘boom’ dos negócios de internet no final dos anos 90, pois poucos ambientes propiciavam tanta criatividade na concepção de modelos de negócios inovadores quanto a internet.
