Design Thinking – more than just a creative process

Does our contemporary condition of uncertainty – the key theme at this year’s OEB – require new forms of thinking? Does the demand for change mean we need to rethink how we make decisions? Steven Ney certainly thinks so. Having started as a researcher in environmental issues, particularly climate change, Ney’s work analyses the way societies deal with complex and uncertain challenges; processes of institutional change and reform are his special interests. One way of achieving this may be “design thinking”, or “d-thinking” for short: a solution-focused and action-oriented methodology used for solving complex problems. Ney is a coach at Hasso Plattner Institute’s School of Design Thinking. A published expert in the field, he will run a full-day ‘taster course in design thinking’ at this year’s OEB in December.
