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.

Jumping to a fresh cycle of innovation design

Paul Hobcraft

I have argued in the past that innovation management needs to radically adjust and needs to be designed differently, it needs to be highly adaptive. I’d like to offer some views, partly looking out to the future, partly considering what is potentially within our grasp, if we step back and rethink innovation design. The need to have a new cycle of innovative design. We design the innovation system we need after we know what we are trying to achieve in the challenge or idea.

When the Idea is Ahead of the Technology

Destination Innovation

Sometimes the idea is tremendous but it fails because of the current state of technology or infrastructure. The English mathematician, Charles Babbage, invented the idea of the digital computer with his design for a ‘Difference Engine’ which he started to build in 1823. This brilliant idea was never completed because the technology of the time was just not up to the job. In twenty or thirty years’ time the technology may arrive to deliver the promise.

By using these nascent user-centered design methods, they were able to meet the expanding needs of their user base and claim over 90% of the small business accounting software market. This expanded the offerings but created a fragmented company where each product had its own division with separate management, design, and–in some cases—offices. A noticeable lack of focus prevented them from innovating as a company; their user-centered design DNA was disappearing.
