I came across this lecture when researching design synthesis. It's something that I certainly have trouble with as I want to make the logical jump to problem solving immediately. Hopefully the techniques outlined here, reframing and abduction, will help everyone break that cognitive bond we have and aid in that magical little thing called insight in both our current headset project and future projects!
In this lecture he mentions the Eames film Powers of Ten. I realized I had never seen it and took it out of our library. It's pretty awesome considering it was made in the 60's (but less impressive in the age of google maps) and great changing the way we view the world.ReplyDelete
