  • IIT Institute of Design, a Chicago graduate design school
    2000s ID helped launch the design thinking movement linking design more closely to business innovation Experimentation rigorous methods human centeredness and strategy support our current focus of preparing individuals and organizations to take on the world s complex fast changing and unpredictable problems such as competitiveness digital media and learning health and wellbeing social innovation and more The world s need for innovation is intense Yet the traditional approach of management science focuses on measuring current operations While that is great for improving the efficiency of what you re already doing it does not lead to disruptive innovation On the other hand the traditional approach of art school design programs focuses on individual creativity The art school approach is hit or miss and ill equipped to address the daunting challenges the world faces What s needed is a third way rigor and creativity a methods based human centered approach to global challenges That s what IIT Institute of Design offers And in the Top Two of any list of schools of creativity would be IIT s Institute of Design in Chicago If you are in business and want people who know how to strategize in a complex and uncertain world you want graduates of ID If you want people who know innovation policy and strategy you want ID grads Bruce Nussbaum Design Oberver ID is a professional school like business school law school or medical school for graduate students We do not offer courses for undergraduates As a professional graduate design school an important part of our work is research In 1987 ID introduced the first PhD program in design in the United States All our full time faculty conduct sponsored research and consistently publish papers journal articles and books ID offers a growing collection of research online As faculty

  • Design strategy for tackling global challenges
    of the past In order to really succeed apps have to become platforms and more and more apps are connected in suites or constellations and linked to hardware online databases and human services These systems of systems or multi systems or product service ecologies represent an emerging new kind of design in which designers coordinate relationships between systems and foster conditions in which ecologies can grow Design for service and design for social innovation are examples of this new kind of multi system design Multi system design strategy requires new frameworks and methods The changing context of design In 1850 goods were scarce for most people in most countries but by 1950 goods had become abundant for most people in developed countries In a world of scarcity making more of just about anything was useful and could be profitable In a world of abundance however where people are already overwhelmed by choice placing the right bets on w hat to make is a strategic necessity Today all around the world large scale manufacturing no longer confers competitive advantage Mass production has become a commodity How do we make more stuff more quickly and more cheaply is no longer quite the question it once was Increasingly important is the question What should we make Said another way we know more and more about h ow to make things and how to build businesses while we know less and less about w ho it s for The growing gap between our knowledge of h ow and w ho is the innovation gap Most of the innovations of the last century were driven by cheap energy large scale fixed production and standards that ignored intangible value because it s difficult to count For example What s the value of clean air What s the cost of poor schools In contrast most of the innovations of the next century will be driven by cheap information flexible production systems and counting both tangible and intangible value In order to move from 20th century innovation to 21st century innovation and bridge the innovation gap we need to invent new design strategy frameworks for describing what people desire and what can sustain businesses society and the environment The role of the innovation dashboard In the early 1990s the Doblin Group pioneered use of the Balanced Innovation model This model argues that successful products balance the needs of users the needs of the business and available technology User business technology was sometimes translated as delightful viable buildable We might recast it as Who Why How Of course What emerges from the intersection of Who Why How These four lenses provide a new way of looking at innovation Each lens asks a key question which can be explored using related frameworks 1 What Offering What should we make What can we offer that will make a difference in the world The product the object itself the environment in which it will operate the messages it will convey services associated
