Looks like you are currently in Ukraine but have requested a page in the Andorra site. Would you like to change to the Andorra site? Idris Mootee. A comprehensive playbook for applied design thinking in business and management, complete with concepts and toolkits. As many companies have lost confidence in the traditional ways of running a business, design thinking has entered the mix. Design Thinking for Strategic Innovation presents a framework for design thinking that is relevant to business management, marketing, and design strategies and also provides a toolkit to apply concepts for immediate use in everyday work. It explains how design thinking can bring about creative solutions to solve complex business problems.
All too often, good ideas die on the vine in the absence of people with a personal commitment to making them happen. Local pediatricians adopted a set of standard asthma protocols, and parents of children with asthma took on a significant role as peer counselors providing intensive education to other families through home visits.
Typically, emergence activities generate a number of competing ideas, more or less attractive and more or less feasible. In the next step, articulation, innovators surface and question their implicit assumptions. Managers are often bad at this, because of many behavioral biases, such as overoptimism, confirmation bias, and fixation on first solutions.
In contrast, design thinking frames the discussion as an inquiry into what would have to be true about the world for an idea to be feasible.
An example of this comes from the Ignite Accelerator program of the U.
Department of Health and Human Services. As team members began to apply design thinking, however, they were asked to surface their assumptions about why the idea would work. It was only then that they realized that their patients, many of whom were elderly Apache speakers, were unlikely to be comfortable with computer technology.
Approaches that worked in urban Baltimore would not work in Whiteriver, so this idea could be safely set aside. At the end of the idea generation process, innovators will have a portfolio of well-thought-through, though possibly quite different, ideas. The assumptions underlying them will have been carefully vetted, and the conditions necessary for their success will be achievable.
The ideas will also have the support of committed teams, who will be prepared to take on the responsibility of bringing them to market.
The Testing Experience Companies often regard prototyping as a process of fine-tuning a product or service that has already largely been developed.
But in design thinking, prototyping is carried out on far-from-finished products. This means that quite radical changes—including complete redesigns—can occur along the way.
And their incompleteness invites interaction. Such artifacts can take many forms. The layout of a new medical office building at Kaiser Permanente, for example, was tested by hanging bedsheets from the ceiling to mark future walls. Nurses and physicians were invited to interact with staffers who were playing the role of patients and to suggest how spaces could be adjusted to better facilitate treatment. At Monash Health, a program called Monash Watch—aimed at using telemedicine to keep vulnerable populations healthy at home and reduce their hospitalization rates—used detailed storyboards to help hospital administrators and government policy makers envision this new approach in practice, without building a digital prototype.
Learning in action. Real-world experiments are an essential way to assess new ideas and identify the changes needed to make them workable. Consider an idea proposed by Don Campbell, a professor of medicine, and Keith Stockman, a manager of operations research at Monash Health. Campbell and Stockman hypothesized that lower-wage laypeople who were carefully selected, trained in health literacy and empathy skills, and backed by a decision support system and professional coaches they could involve as needed could help keep the at-risk patients healthy at home.
Their proposal was met with skepticism. Many of their colleagues held a strong bias against letting anyone besides a health professional perform such a service for patients with complex issues, but using health professionals in the role would have been unaffordable.
Rather than debating this point, however, the innovation team members acknowledged the concerns and engaged their colleagues in the codesign of an experiment testing that assumption.
Three hundred patients later, the results were in: Overwhelmingly positive patient feedback and a demonstrated reduction in bed use and emergency room visits, corroborated by independent consultants, quelled the fears of the skeptics. Immersion in the customer experience produces data, which is transformed into insights, which help teams agree on design criteria they use to brainstorm solutions.
Along the way, design-thinking processes counteract human biases that thwart creativity while addressing the challenges typically faced in reaching superior solutions, lowered costs and risks, and employee download-in.
Recognizing organizations as collections of human beings who are motivated by varying perspectives and emotions, design thinking emphasizes engagement, dialogue, and learning.
By involving customers and other stakeholders in the definition of the problem and the development of solutions, design thinking garners a broad commitment to change.
And by supplying a structure to the innovation process, design thinking helps innovators collaborate and agree on what is essential to the outcome at every phase.
The new design function and the new innovation culture need to be advocated and protected by the CEO or by somebody influential enough at the executive level. Establish the design function embedded inside the business organization. It should be a peer of other key functions such as business development, finance and marketing to be able to drive strategic innovation throughout the organization.
The key pillars of a design functions are senior leaders who run key strategic areas such as business design, strategy innovation, organizational design, brand design, product design, and customer experience design. Let these leaders to build their design teams. Integrate several quick wins in the implementation strategy and celebrate small victories to keep the spirit of the stakeholders high and to show them that you are moving in the rights direction in the right way.
Identify and implement mini-projects where you can show the value of design very quickly inside to the stakeholders.
Learn from early successes and failures and adapt your strategy of building processes that can enable the new approach to be adopted by all the stakeholders willingly.
Involve them in building a new design-friendly culture and integrating it inside the organization. Then you need to identify quick wins: those projects where you can show the value of design very quickly inside the organization.
On the basis of this early success, you start to build processes that can enable the new culture and approach to be integrated inside the organization. Strategic design thinking can power corporate strategy in many ways. Having realized that, more and more organizations are creating a chief design officer role and a top-management position.
PepsiCo leveraged design to create meaningful and relevant brand experiences for their customers any time they interact with PepsiCo's portfolio of products.
