Human centeredness as a concept seems to be new in organisations. Design Thinking puts the human being in the center of attention. And by doing so Design Thinking is able to counterbalance the sole focus on developing new products and services.
Yet there are more sources that put humans in the center. Sources that have been with us for a very long time. Ancient wisdoms as Kabbalah and Confucius.
In this session we explore these ancient wisdoms and discover how they can fuel your design thinking mind. By doing so we hope you find natural connections between your ancient wisdoms and your design thinking practice, and that these connections inspire you in a playful way to continue your work.
Wednesday Web Jam no. 84 - "How Design Thinkers keep their brain in check”(Insights with best practice sharing and connecting) with Sandra Lutz-Brown and Ana Marhuenda
The human brain is great and mysterious and wonderful – and also quite unreliable and fallible when it comes to understanding things and making decisions. Organisational Development Trends and research into the future of work have long identified the importance of putting neuroscientific insights and understanding of how our brain works (or sabotages us) at the centre of their designs.
We will tickle your brains with some fun and surprising insights into the design of our thinking organ. What does it actually mean to get our brain to really play on our side and not against us when we engage with problems and other people around us when we learn about so many of its in-built design faults? How can the ways Design Thinking works help us keep our brains in check?
In this WWJ session, Howard will be sharing his brief influences of being an experiential and experimental designer, where he will invite the audience to explore an inquiry of both Service Design and Sense-Making and will initiate discussions around it. He will also storytell his experiment of the exploration of global service design through sense-making, where he will communicate his unique service observations and insights from the global cities of Manila, Tokyo, Beirut, Dubai, and Hong Kong, which includes his experimental global journey key takeaways and conclusions.
Also, there will be a remote interactive service design mini-sensemaking group session
ending that brief remote collaboration with an open sharing of service design experiences.
