Topic – “Lean Startup at a Large Company: How Design Thinking is Transforming Product Development at IBM” The market for enterprise software is undergoing significant changes, driven by three strong forces: – Enterprise users are demanding consumer-grade product experiences; user-centric design has become a key market differentiator – Cloud is moving our release and -learning cadence from months and years to weeks, days and hours – Consumption of enterprise software is shifting from buyers to users, from licenses to subscriptions, from physical to digital At IBM, in response to this, we’re in the middle of three mutually re-inforcing transformations: Design, Product Management and Agile. In this talk, Greger will discuss how IBM is going about these transformations, how the practices fit together and what the outcomes are to date. This is transformation at scale: thousands of product managers, designers, and engineers; hundreds of product teams and thousands of releases annually. It’s affecting how teams do user- and market research, how they discover problems worth solving, how they practice user-centric design and deliver incrementally. It’s Design Thinking combined with Lean Startup combined with DevOps/Agile, and it is changing the roles as designers, product managers and engineers.

The Innovator's Dilemma and The Lean Startup have brought iterative product development and design into the mainstream. Great UX is now the differentiator. Your organization has bought in and is ready to kickstart new product design and innovation efforts. There's just one problem: making design, development and product play nicely together is (and has been) a challenge. More often than not, you're practicing "Agilefall" with designers working up front to feed developers' sprints. How do we solve this? In this fun, dynamic talk, Jeff will cover: - Why UX is critical to a product's success - What design can teach us about building a collaborative culture - How to structure a collaborative product design team - How that team should work - How to measure that team's success - How this shifts your company's culture Jeff will offer practical, step-by-step, guidance on how to build and support successful product design innovation in your business. Using insights gained from leading and working with dozens of product and UX design teams, Jeff will step through team makeup, process, management structure and the corporate infrastructure needed for these teams to flourish.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Robyn treats teaching like a musical gig. Teaching Design Thinking in her own way through rediscovering lost mediums with her students, she encourages people to re-frame what they think they know. Robyn Richardson was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida and is happiest with her toes in the water - to date, they have splashed through many oceans, seas and rivers around the world. A former high school English teacher and routine musical maven, she is certain that the best things in life are both entertaining and educational. Her life's mission is to leverage design to create amazing things (stories, objects, music, movies, installations) that magically engage and overtly delight you. She loves playing connect-the-dots (the live version) and enjoys existential sleuthing.

A Method for Green Design Presentation Date: April 30, 2010 Abstract: When LFM/LGO and SDM alumni took my Product Design and Development class, we did not teach a method for design for environment (DFE). This back-to-the-classroom web seminar is intended to fill this gap with a brief session highlighting some emerging best practices in this important area. Based on a recently completed chapter (to be published next year in my Product Design and Development textbook), I will highlight some of the ways that businesses can think about the environmental impact of their products and how they can work effectively to reduce or eliminate these impacts.

What is INNOVATION COMPETITION? What does INNOVATION COMPETITION mean? INNOVATION COMPETITION meaning - INNOVATION COMPETITION definition - INNOVATION COMPETITION explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ An innovation competition is a method or process of the industrial process, product or business development. It is a form of social engineering, which focuses to the creation and elaboration of the best and sustainable ideas, coming from the best innovators. There are few major works, like Terwiesch and Ulrich, who exclusively focus on innovation competitions. They argue, that while innovation is seen as a largely creative endeavor, it can also be rigorously managed by viewing and structuring the innovation process as a collection of “opportunities”. Profitable innovation comes not from increasing investments in R&D, but from systematically identifying more exceptional opportunities. Terwiesch and Ulrich show how to design and run innovation tournaments: pitting competing opportunities against one another, and then consistently filtering out the weakest ones until only those with the highest profit potential remain. The aims and the design principles of the innovation competitions are noted in the literature as follows: Encourage Adidas users to participate in an open innovation process, to inspire their creativity, and to increase the quality of the submissions. Constraints are an invaluable tool for fostering creativity. Idea Crossing’s contestants bound by rules strive to strategize optimal solutions to meet a competition's goal. Generate innovations, process and product ideas for SAP Research and Development through an IT-supported ideas competition among the SAP UCC Community. The concept aims at providing an interface to SAP Human Resources processes in order to identify the most promising students for VCs. Siemens Corporate Technology held an idea competition to help bridge the innovation gap that exists between the different R&D departments and the operational units. The company learnt that idea competitions can be a first step toward more comprehensive innovation processes. Innovation competitions are useful in generating radical ideas for the development of new products for the service industry. Innovation competitions are sometimes organized by a third party (an intermediator), instead of the focal company or innovator community. Unfortunately, innovation intermediator studies happen also to be a scarce resource. Chesbrough calls innovation brokers 'innovation intermediaries'.

This video is about Project-Based Learning. This is me in the 8th grade. I was a combination of shy and nerdy. My whole goal was to remain invisible. I had one friend, this kid named Matt. We were two nerds in a pod. And, fortunately for me, he had perfect attendance year after year. Until, one day he was sick. I stood in the cafeteria, looking out at the sea of students, someone would invite me over. But it didn’t happen. I hid in boy’s restroom for the next 24 minutes. I was invisible. But not to Mrs. Smoot and Mr. Darrow. They knew me. They knew I cared about social justice and baseball and history, so they invited me to do a History Day project. Although it was fun, it was also terrifying. I had to plan the entire project and track my own progress. I had to figure out what questions to ask and where to find the answers. I had to narrow down my topic to something I cared about—in this case, Jackie Robinson and the integration of baseball. I wrote letters to newscasters and made phone calls to former players. I remember picking up the phone, my hands trembling, as I read aloud my pre-recorded script and waited for the stranger to respond. I eventually worked on a slide presentation. The most nerve-wracking moment occurred when I sat in a radio studio recording my script. When I listened to my voice for the first time, I hated it. At one point, I threw my hands up in the air. “I’m not doing this,” I said. But Mrs. Smoot looked me in the eyes and said: I ended up sharing it with my class and then in the district competition, state competition and eventually in Washington D.C. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, Mrs. Smoot was why I became an educator. That project helped me grow into a creative thinker and problem-solver. And that experience is why I ultimately embraced project-based learning. Project-based learning is different from traditional classroom projects Learning through projects culminating projects Student choice in design vs. following a set of instructions Student inquiry vs. Pre-planned questions Self and peer assessment vs Teacher assessment Student ownership of process vs. Teacher ownership of process The Buck Institute identifies the following seven project design elements: 1. Challenging Problem or Question 2. Sustained Inquiry 3. Authenticity 4. Student Voice & Choice 5. Reflection 6. Critique & Revision 7. Public Product Note that project-based learning can work in tandem with other pedagogical models, like inquiry-based learning, design thinking, and problem-based learning. But the key idea remains that students are learning through projects and as a result they engage in deeper learning. SOURCES: Blumenfeld, P. C., Soloway, E., Marx, R. W., Krajcik, J.

World premiere for the new Actros in Berlin. Just in time for the IAA Commercial Vehicles Show, which is taking place in Hanover, Germany, from 20 to 27 September 2018, Mercedes-Benz is today unveiling the new flagship from Mercedes-Benz Trucks to the world's press at the Premiere Night. To support drivers as well as to further enhance safety and comfort, Mercedes-Benz Trucks is bringing semi-automated driving to series production: the new Active Drive Assist can brake, accelerate and steer. The system offers semi-automated driving at all speed ranges, not just some. The fuel consumption of the new Actros has once again been reduced compared to previous models and it achieves savings of up to three percent on motorways and as much as five percent on rural routes. Aerodynamic improvements have been achieved thanks to MirrorCam and new cab side deflectors. Predictive Powertrain Control (PPC), an intelligent cruise control, works considerably more efficiently than before and can now be used on rural routes, too, thanks to additional map data. New, fuel-saving rear axle ratios are also being deployed. The main mirrors and wide-angle mirrors have been replaced on the new Actros by the MirrorCam as part of the standard equipment. The MirrorCam represents a tremendous improvement in terms of aerodynamics, safety and vehicle handling. This system provides a significantly improved all-round view and consists of two cameras mounted to the exterior of the vehicle and two 15-inch displays on the A-pillars inside the cab. Active Brake Assist 5 supports the driver in case of a potential rear-end collision or a collision with a person who is crossing in front of the vehicle, coming towards it or staying in the same lane – if required initiating maximum full braking to standstill automatically. As of now Active Brake Assist 5 works with a combination of a radar and camera system. This enables the system to monitor the space in front of the vehicle even better and respond to people even more effectively. All assistance systems in all Mercedes-Benz vehicles work within system limits at all times to their full capacity. The driver retains full responsibility with respect to the road and traffic conditions. The new Actros with its fully updated Multimedia Cockpit offers the driver a unique level of operational convenience and display comfort. Two interactive screens as standard serve as the central source of information in the driver's digital cockpit of the future. Assistance systems are visualised here, as well as all basic information which is relevant to the driver. Connectivity is now reality in the Actros: smartphones can be connected via Apple CarPlayTM or Android Auto. Apps help the driver to fulfil their transportation tasks. The Truck Data Centre connects the truck permanently to the cloud and forms the basis of all connectivity solutions. Real-time monitoring of the truck via Fleetboard and Mercedes-Benz Uptime brings added value for the business owner. The driver also enjoys greater ease of operation thanks to the new remote-control key provided as standard. The development of the interior design of the new Actros has revolved systematically around the driver – working from the "inside out" as a principle. The result is a modern truck interior. The new "user experience" for the driver governed the entire design process. The strongest manifestation of this is in the new Multimedia Cockpit, which takes the Actros to the digital age. Touch functionality, the widescreen format for the displays, as well as details of the surfaces, trim elements and the few remaining analogue switches, are all hallmarks of the modern, high-quality interior of the new flagship from Mercedes-Benz Trucks. On the exterior, the omission of conventional outside mirrors gives the proportions of the Actros an even more homogeneous appearance. The dynamic styling of the MirrorCam and the characteristic front headlamps featuring LED technology create a progressive look for the new Mercedes-Benz Actros. A reduction in total overall costs, a high level of safety and maximum vehicle availability are crucial factors when it comes to transportation on construction sites, too. That is why numerous product highlights from the new Actros are also available on the new Arocs. For example, every Arocs comes with improved Predictive Powertrain Control as standard, which displays its strengths in construction traffic in particular, characterised by its multiple, often short, interurban runs.

What does propaganda in the Internet age look like? Daniel van der Velden will show footage from Metahaven's debut feature film The Sprawl. In an interview with Christy Lange, he gives insights into the film’s trajectory and explains how Metahaven uses graphic design, identity branding, and product development as a means to investigate existing commercial and political power structures. The Sprawl is an immersive video installation that explores the mutation of propaganda in the age of social media. The project investigates the recent Ebola outbreak, the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, and the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) through the internet and traditional news media. Unlike previous eras, where the state continuously enforces one propagandistic message to the public, the example of these three crises reveals how propaganda now exists within a horizontal field of instant, multiple messages.

Extremely valuable innovations are usually based on statistically exceptional opportunities. In most settings, organizations use tournaments to find these exceptional opportunities, by which I mean they generate many candidate opportunities and develop and filter them until only the very best remain. Although the basic idea of a tournament is common in industrial practice, very little science has been brought to bear on the problem of generating more, better opportunities and on more accurately evaluating and selecting the exceptional few. In this keynote I lay out a science of extreme-value innovation, illustrating how the somewhat random process of identifying and selecting opportunities can be managed more deliberately. How might information technology be brought to bear on this larger problem of innovation.

Car Design News hosted Visualization & Digital Effect Creation with Autodesk on February 9, 2011. This webinar explored how effective communication is key to 'selling' a particular design internally, and provided information on how to get your vision across using Autodesk Showcase, with an emphasis on materials, cross-sections and environments. We all know that a beautifully-rendered image captures the emotion of a design idea; convincing animations and digital effects place the product in a realistic environment and depict consumer interaction, making the design credible and relevant to the target consumer. In today's competitive global marketplace, designers are under constant pressure to not only design, but also communicate on-the-fly to sell their product. With shorter development cycles, designers are increasingly called upon to contribute their artwork for use in product marketing and advertising. In this webinar, Autodesk demonstrated how Showcase facilitates the conversation, weaving realistic imagery together with flawless interoperability and a multitude of design creation tools. The webinar, Autodesk's third with Car Design News, was hosted by Kevin Ketchum, an Automotive Design Solutions Engineer. Kevin is a well-established digital artist who has experience working for various consumer product and automotive manufacturers, including Motorola, Nike, Sea Ray, General Motors, Ford, the former DaimlerChrysler, Lincoln, and Hyundai. He's also the former president of the Industrial Design Society of America. Over the course of his career, Kevin has created rendered images by using various software packages to create the commercial artwork used for print, online, and broadcast promotional material. Kevin illustrated the ease with which animations and digital effects can be created using 3dsMax and Maya in order to communicate a design. Part of a continuing complimentary series from CDN the 45-minute webinar is now free to view or download.

What is SECOND MODERNITY? What does SECOND MODERNITY mean? SECOND MODERNITY meaning - SECOND MODERNITY definition - SECOND MODERNITY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Second modernity is a phrase coined by the German sociologist Ulrich Beck, and is his word for the period after modernity. Where modernity broke down agricultural society in favour of industrial society, second modernity transforms industrial society into a new and more reflexive network society or information society (He 2012, 111 and 215). Second modernity is marked by a new awareness of the risks — risks to all forms of life, plant, animal and human — created by the very successes of modernity in tackling the problem of human scarcity (Carrier and Nordmann 2011, 449). Systems that previously seemed to offer protection from risks both natural and social are increasingly recognised as producing new man-made risks on a global scale as a byproduct of their functioning (He 2012, 147). Such systems become part of the problem, not the solution. Modernisation and information advances themselves create new social dangers, such as cybercrime (He 2012, 69), while scientific advances open up new areas, like cloning or genetic modification, where decisions are necessarily made without adequate capacity to assess longterm consequences (Allan, Adam, and Carter 1999, xii–ii). Recognising the fresh dilemmas created by this reflexive modernization, Beck has suggested a new "cosmopolitan Realpolitik" to overcome the difficulties of a world in which national interests can no longer be promoted effectively at the national level alone (Beck 2006, 173). Second modernity has also been linked to the so-called knowledge society, marked by a pluralisation of different types of knowledge (Carrier n.d., 439 and 448). It is characterised in particular by knowledge-dependent risks — the uncertainties manufactured by the information world itself (Harding 2008, 55–58). Various forms of resistance to second modernity have emerged, among them for example Euroscepticism (Marchetti and Vidović 2010, 171). Beck himself sees al-Qaeda as a by-product of, as well as resistance to, second modernity, not only in its use of information technology tools, but also in its syncretist ideology (Beck 2006, 113).
