Design thinking research : studying co-creation in practice by Hasso Plattner( )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation This book summarizes the results of the second year in the Design Thinking Research Program, a joint venture of Stanford University in Palo Alto and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. The authors have taken a closer look at the issue of co-creation from different points-of-view. The concept of co-creation can also be applied to the phase in which new ideas and related thought start to influence companies, the economy, our culture, and society. The perpetual pursuit for inventions, new creations and innovations is inherent in human nature. The concept behind co-creation may sound simple, however, it is both an essential element of Design Thinking and highly complex. It is about creating positive synergies for all parties involved
Design thinking research : measuring performance in context by Hasso Plattner( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes the results of the third year in the Design Thinking Research Program, a joint venture of Stanford University in Palo Alto and the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam. Understanding the evolution of innovation, and how to measure the performance of the design thinking teams behind innovations, is the central motivation behind the research work presented in this book. Addressing these fundamental concerns, all of the contributions in this volume report on different approaches and research efforts aimed at obtaining deeper insights into and a better understanding of how design thinking transpires. In highly creative ways, different experiments were conceived and undertaken with this goal in mind, and the results achieved were analyzed and discussed to shed new light on the focus areas. We hope that our readers enjoy this discourse on design thinking and its diverse impacts. Besides looking forward to receiving your critical feedback, we also hope that when reading these reports you too will get caught up in the fun our research teams had in carrying out the work they are based on: understanding innovation and how design thinking fosters it, which was the motivation for all the research work that is reported on in this book
Design thinking research : building innovation eco-systems by Larry J Leifer( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes the results of Design Thinking Research carried out at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, USA, and Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany. The authors offer readers a closer look at Design Thinking with its processes of innovations and methods. The contents of the articles range from how to design ideas, methods, and technologies via creativity experiments and wicked problem solutions, to creative collaboration in the real world and the connectivity of designers and engineers. But the topics go beyond this in their detailed exploration of design thinking and its use in IT systems engineering fields and even from a management perspective. The authors show how these methods and strategies work in companies, introduce new technologies and their functions and demonstrate how Design Thinking can influence as diverse a topic area as marriage. Furthermore, we see how special design thinking use functions in solving wicked problems in complex fields. Thinking and creating innovations are basically and inherently human - so is Design Thinking. Due to this, Design Thinking is not only a factual matter or a result of special courses nor of being gifted or trained: it's a way of dealing with our environment and improving techniques, technologies and life
Design thinking research : building innovators by Hasso Plattner( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Design thinking as a user-centric innovation method has become more and more widespread during the past years. An increasing number of people and institutions have experienced its innovative power. While at the same time the demand has grown for a deep, evidence-based understanding of the way design thinking functions. This challenge is addressed by the Design Thinking Research Program between Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA, and Hasso Plattner Institute, Potsdam, Germany. Summarizing the outcomes of the 5th program year, this book imparts the scientific findings gained by the researchers through their investigations, experiments, and studies. The method of design thinking works when applied with diligence and insight. With this book and the underlying research projects, we aim to understand the innovation process of design thinking and the people behind it. The contributions ultimately center on the issue of building innovators. The focus of the investigation is on what people are doing and thinking when engaged in creative design innovation and how their innovation work can be supported. Therefore, within three topic areas, various frameworks, methodologies, mindsets, systems and tools are explored and further developed. The book begins with an assessment of crucial factors for innovators such as empathy and creativity, the second part addresses the improvement of team collaboration and finally we turn to specific tools and approaches which ensure information transfer during the design process. All in all, the contributions shed light and show deeper insights how to support the work of design teams in order to systematically and successfully develop innovations and design progressive solutions for tomorrow

Social responses to somatic technology : an application in human-service robotics by James Joseph Wagner( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

People with severe physical disabilities who have non-technical backgrounds are unlikely candidates to be able to operate vocational assistive robots. Such robotic devices have been costly, complex, programmable only by experts, and prohibitive to user changes. This dissertation describes the design approach created in the development of a small desktop robot system called the Professional Vocational Assistant Robot (ProVAR). ProVAR deals explicitly with the social aspects of human-robot interaction to help individuals with tetraplegia to use the robot. This design approach was heavily influenced by the theory of Social Responses to Communication Technologies (SRCT) and by psychology research that shows the power of a team in complex command, design and learning scenarios. The SRCT concept holds that people's reactions and interactions with computers and other new media entities follow the same social rules used in human-human interactions. If those reactions can be enhanced, the success of assistive robotic systems dependent on them can also be increased. The leveraging of social responses can increase tolerance for the robotic systems' difficulties, and thus increase the chance of adoption and sustained use of the assistive devices by lay users not experienced in computers, robots, or mechanical control devices. A new theory, growing out of SRCT, was proposed. "Social Responses to Somatic Technology" (SRST) guided the development of ProVAR. It is based on a robot users perception that a somatic, e.g., robotic, technology device is, in fact, a social entity. As does a human social entity, each technological social entity consists of two components: the "body" and the "mind." The ProVAR System was designed with two complete social entities, or personalities; both induce social responses. Each of ProVAR's two personalities is expected to maintain a personal relationship with the users, in this case, with an individual with severe physical disabilities and with the occupational therapist responsible for his/her rehabilitation. ProVAR's graphical user interface, named "Jiminey, " is primarily considered by the user to be a mind: a smart consultant/coach. ProVAR's robotic arm, "Pinocchio, " is primarily perceived by the user to be a body: the down-to-earth do'er itself. Even though each of these social entities does have both a body and a mind, each personality's different dominant characteristic allows the user to perceive that he/she is functioning as a teammate with two other distinct entities. These three partners work together to help manage and take advantage of the special capabilities of the ProVAR System to complete desired tasks. During Experiment 1, ProVAR showed 100% of novice users able independently to execute both preprogrammed tasks and also the more complicated manipulation of existing tasks and creation of new ones. ProVAR's SRST-inspired design is effective, with seven of eight metrics positively ranked by users. One additional finding showed that training first on the user interface alone without the presence of the robotic arm was not time effective. A further examination of the application of the SRST concept of "Social Entity = Body + Mind" was done in Experiment 2, studying the effect of the body and the mind of the robotic arm being perceived not to be co-located but in separate locations. Results showed that usability was ranked higher by the study participants if the arm (the body) was perceived as autonomous, i.e., controlling itself (by its mind) with an internal inboard computer, rather than the arm being remote-controlled, i.e., teleoperated (by its mind), in a computer located in another room
Design for wellbeing innovations for people by Larry J Leifer( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing need for engineering designers to engage in creative activities that result in innovative products and technologies for the benefit of society. However, from an engineering perspective, issues of 'life quality' are currently heavily under-prioritized, particularly with regard to people with disabilities. This paper argues that both needs and solutions are now part of the designer's responsibility, and that it is crucial to make a qualitative assessment of both the potential market impact and the 'quality of life' improvements afforded by innovations. Design for Wellbeing offers a perspective on life quality that goes beyond the traditional scope of assistive technology in that it aims to help people make a transformation from an actual state of being to a desired state of being - regardless of ability level
