This is the first in a series of posts I'll frequently put up highlighting nuggets of inspiration I find, or that seemingly find me. These are things that excite me, keep me going and inspire me to continue learning and moving forward.
First up: IDEO’s David Kelley on Design Thinking (pardon the “60 Minutes” stiff reporting style, the material speaks for itself).
I have a science background, so part of my trained thought process is observational and methodical. Design Thinking is a super intriguing theory/practice because it combines human behavior observation, methodical process with creativity and art/design…all to make things better for people.
I’m also in love with the fact that Kelley believes that design thinking should be taught and practiced by people from a range of backgrounds (I agree). A team should consist of a diverse group of people who can build off of each other’s ideas.
Completely solid and I’m completely sold. This is the essence of my interest.
