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.

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.

“Everybody loves an innovation, an idea that sells.“ But how do we arrive at such ideas that sell? And is it possible to learn how to become an innovator? Over the years Design Thinking – a program originally developed in the engineering department of Stanford University and offered by the two D-schools at the Hasso Plattner Institutes in Stanford and in Potsdam – has proved to be really successful in educating innovators. It blends an end-user focus with multidisciplinary collaboration and iterative improvement to produce innovative products, systems, and services. Design Thinking creates a vibrant interactive environment that promotes learning through rapid conceptual prototyping. In 2008, the HPI-Stanford Design Thinking Research Program was initiated, a venture that encourages multidisciplinary teams to investigate various phenomena of innovation in its technical, business, and human aspects. The researchers are guided by two general questions: 1. What are people really thinking and doing when they are engaged in creative design innovation? How can new frameworks, tools, systems, and methods augment, capture, and reuse successful practices? 2. What is the impact on technology, business, and human performance when design thinking is practiced? How do the tools, systems, and methods really work to get the innovation you want when you want it? How do they fail? In this book, the researchers take a system’s view that begins with a demand for deep, evidence-based understanding of design thinking phenomena. They continue with an exploration of tools which can help improve the adaptive expertise needed for design thinking. The final part of the book concerns design thinking in information technology and its relevance for business process modeling and agile software development, i.e. real world creation and deployment of products, services, and enterprise systems.

Beiträger aus Forschung, Lehre und Wirtschaft (darunter Jochen Gürtler, SAP; Martin Wegner, DHL; Julia Leihener, Telekom Creation Center) berichten über ihre Erfahrungen oder besser ihre Erlebnisse mit Design Thinking. Sie machen anschaulich, dass und wie Problemlösung, Ideenfindung und 'sechte ́ Innovation im interdisziplinär, experimentell und vor allem nutzerorientiert angelegten Rahmen besser und erfolgreicher möglich sind als in herkömmlichen Innovationsprozessen. Für sie alle steht Design Thinking für eine Denkweise, eine Art, die Welt zu sehen, in deren Zentrum unbedingt der Mensch steht-als Kunde, als Nutzer, als Lernender-, auf den sich alle Entwicklungs-und Innovationsarbeit beziehen soll. Sie wollen vermitteln, wie Design Thinking sich 'sanfühlt ́, welche Wirkungen, bis hinein in den persönlichen Alltag, sich ergeben, wie sich eine neue Form der Aufmerksamkeit und Achtsamkeit, eine Haltung des vernetzten Denkens einstellt und schließlich-auf Unternehmensebene-eine neue Arbeitskultur entstehen kann.

English summary: This study introduces the method of design thinking as a strategic tool for companies. Design thinking suggests approaching a task from different angles thus triggering or supporting innovative processes. This works best when customers and employees from various fields cooperate to find a dynamic solution to a problem. As part of their consulting projects undertaken for numerous Brazilian companies the authors have dealt extensively with options for the practical application of design thinking. Based on their experience they suggest an approach which can be divided into four phases: immersion, analysis/synthesis, brainstorming and prototyping. Best-practice case studies illustrate these individual phases in more detail. German description: In diesem Buch wird die Methode des Design Thinking als ein strategisches Werkzeug fur Unternehmen vorgestellt. Design Thinking ermoglicht, eine Aufgabe aus verschiedenen Blickwinkeln zu betrachten und so den Innovationsprozess in Gang zu bringenoder zu unterstutzen. Das gelingt am Besten, wenn Kunden und Mitarbeiter verschiedener Fachrichtungen gemeinsam an der dynamischen Losung eines Problems arbeiten. Die Autoren haben sich im Rahmen ihrer beratenden Tatigkeit in zahlreichen brasilianischen Unternehmen ausfuhrlich mit demmoglichen Prozessablauf von Design Thinking befasst. Sie schlagen auf Grundlage ihrer Erfahrungen einen Ansatz vor, der sich in vierPhasen aufteilt: Immersion, Analyse/Synthese, Ideensammlung und Prototypisierung. Die Inhalte der einzelnen Phasen werden durch best-practice Beispiele illustriert.

This book, at the crossroads of creativity, design and interdisciplinary studies, offers an overview of these major trends in scientific research, society, culture and economics. It brings together different approaches and communities around a common reflection on interdisciplinary creative design thinking. This collective effort provides a unique dialogical and convergent space that deals with the challenges and opportunities met by researchers and practitioners working on design thinking, creativity and inter- and transdisciplinarity, or at the interface between these areas.
