Here at MJV, we apply many methodologies, tools and approaches to the realization of open innovation projects – Design Thinking, Lean Startup/UX, Design and Agile Sprints, Digital Marketing, Hackathons, etc.

Design As Strategy: How Design Can Improve Your Business Outcomes

Game-Changer

Design thinking. The trick is to think like a designer. When drafting a new idea on a business model canvas you are using a framework to design a business. Here are some questions we discussed: Fundamentally, what is design thinking? What does a design team look like?

Innovation pioneer Dieter Rams’ “Ten principles for good design”

Idea to Value

If you work in design or innovation, you might not necessarily have heard of Dieter Rams. But you will have definitely felt his impact in the design principles which underlay much of his work. Rams is renowned for his “less, but better” design philosophy, which helped him design a number of iconic products for both Braun (electronics) and Vitsœ (furniture and the 606 Shelving system) throughout the 1950s and 1960s, making both companies household names.

If You Want To Learn Problem Solving, Learn From Designers

Game-Changer

My response: If you want to learn about problem solving, learn from designers. Design for me isn’t about how pretty something looks, but how it works. I don’t write a lot about design in this blog but I do have a very deep respect and admiration for it.

The limitations, criticisms and new pathways for Design Thinking – Part One

Paul Hobcraft

Let me summarize where we are today in design thinking. In the past couple of weeks, I have been spending a fair amount of time on investigating design thinking. This is part one of my thoughts that came out of investigating and researching design thinking in the past couple of weeks.

Design Thinking & the Uncertain Future VUCA

The Future Shapers

Design Thinking and the premises of the future: The ambiguity associated with the lack of clarity in the exposure of the problem that gives rise to interpretations. The same conditions cause different consequences when applying the Design Thinking methodology. There is no Design Thinking for everything and much less for everyone. No recipe always works for everyone; There are so many Design Thinking methodologies as stars on the horizon… Which one is right for you?

The role Human Resources can play in Innovation and its needed Design

Paul Hobcraft

I believe within our human resource groups they must provide the people solution to building innovation capacity, they should contribute to providing lasting design impact and central engagement role in building innovation into the core fabric of the organisation.

#1,401 – Designer Babies

Greatest. Idea. Ever.

People are likely going to be up in arms over news that a rogue Chinese scientist has allegedly (for the first-time ever) successfully used the CRISPR gene-editing technique to create a designer baby. Is creating a designer baby the Greatest Idea Ever?

“Lean Startup, or Business Model Design, or Design Thinking?” is the Wrong Question

Frameworks by definition are loose scaffolding that provides structure, guidelines, and playbooks versus prescriptive processes found in methodologies. Stay tuned for more… [link] “Lean Startup, or Business Model Design, or Design Thinking?”

Why designers need systems thinking

The Inovo Group

Design thinking is big in the corporate world. Ever since Tim Brown wrote his seminal book ‘ The Art of Innovation ‘ in 2001, the role of design thinking in innovation has grown – and for good reason. The post Why designers need systems thinking appeared first on Inovo.

How to Avoid Design Transfer Failure

Innovation Excellence

Design transfer involves moving an approved design into production. For most product development initiatives, the process of design transfer is complex with many moving parts, involving partners that are geographically widespread.

An Innovation Lexicon

IdeaScale

Let’s start with a general definition that states “Innovation is something new and useful ” incorporates both the concepts of novelty and value. All of these definitions carry interesting insights. Innovation means different things to different people.

Your Future Lies in Occupying the Innovation Job and Using the Skills it Provides

Have you noticed everyone has a different definition of innovation? We all struggle with our own definitions of what innovation means. Source: World Economic Forum, Future of Jobs Report 2018.

A modern variation of a similar design used in the recent restoration of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.[2]. Woodworkers, for example and by comparison, will often design jigs to position a part in relation to a tool in order to augment the function of that tool.

Design Thinking Grows Up - Welcome to Experience Thinking

Legacy Innovation Group

Design Thinking Grows Up — Welcome to Experience Thinking. Design Thinking is an incredibly powerful way to approach the design of just about anything that involves an interaction with people (or other intelligent creatures). Its underlying philosophy of Human Centered Design requires that we develop a comprehensive empathic understanding of the customer and their situation in a particular context. Step 4 — Realization: The Design.

The Past and Future of Experience Design

Boxes and Arrows

Ten years ago, when I wrote The Making of a Discipline: The Making of a Title, 2002, there was a big debate on: Is experience design about online and mobile interfaces or is it something more? And, if this was to be the definition of delivering experiences, perhaps they were right.

Are Design Patterns an Anti-pattern?

Boxes and Arrows

Design patterns are generally considered a good thing, but do they actually help run a user experience group? As a user experience group manager and an observer (and sponsor) of design pattern exercises, I’ve come to have serious questions about their actual utility.

What UX Designers Need to Know about Conversion Rate Optimization

Boxes and Arrows

The real problem many organizations face regarding conversion, is that content is often still considered “the stuff that goes into the design.” Putting content at center stage means changing some of the fundamental ways we think about content in the design process and how it helps conversion.

Building the In-house Design Agency

Boxes and Arrows

The hardest part of building an in-house design agency is answering the basic “Why?”. I’ve made the mistake many times of assuming too much–assuming that help was wanted, or even needed; assuming that people understood the terms I used, like ‘deliverable’; assuming that everyone bought into the value of design in general, or on this specific project. User research can validate the concept; concept designs can help communicate their vision.

What is design thinking and how can it help you innovate?

hackerearth

Today, the business world recognizes that continuous innovation and design thinking are the keys to long-term sustainability and success. Design Thinking is NOT a New Concept. With all the hype around design thinking, one would think that it is a new concept.

Designing the Democratic

Boxes and Arrows

The role of the information architect (IA), interaction designer, or user experience (UX) designer is to help create architecture and interactions which will impact the user in constructive, meaningful ways. Sometimes the design choices are strategic and affect a broad interaction environment; other times they may be tactical and detailed, affecting few. But sometimes the design choices we make are not good enough for the users we’re trying to reach.

Bridging the Gap between Large Innovation Centers and Small Design Teams

Qmarkets

Digital design teams are their natural counterpart, driving innovation on a more personal level. Innovation centers and digital design teams: quick definitions. Innovation programs are typically designed to improve established methods of business or operational procedures.

With innovation, it depends.

Mike Shipulski

By definition, when the work is new there is uncertainty. But uncertainty is an unknown quantity, and our systems have been designed to reject it, not swim in it. Innovation is, by definition, work that is new. And, innovation, by definition, is uncertain.

See differently to solve differently.
