Innovation Methods Mapping Preview

Two + years in the making, Humantific, in concert with OPEN Innovation Consortium is sharing the preview version of the new book:

Innovation Methods Mapping / DeMystifying 80 Years of Innovation Process Design.

If you would like to send us a comment, or be placed on the pre-order list for the print version of the book please feel free to leave a comment below and or email: methodsmapping (at) openinnovationconsortium (dot) org

This workbook presents a new kind of methods analysis framework applied to 50 innovation process models spanning a period of 80+ years. Embedded in the framework is a new form of innovation process literacy, designed to enhance understanding of historical and current process models, as well as inform future process design.

This study has been created and shared for educational purposes.

This book is designed to fill what the consortium perceives to be a void in the field of innovation process knowledge.

As an OPEN Innovation Consortium initiative, the goal of this book project is to help move the art, science and design of innovation process modeling forward into the 21st century.

See Open Innovation Consortium in the Initiatives section of this Humantific website.

    Congratulations on an excellent book. I will be using this in my workplace and consulting work. Please add me to the pre-order list.

    I am finding being able to discuss the pros and cons of different innovation processes is necessary as part of introducing innovation and design thinking processes and this book certainly helps me tell that story.

  • JanJaap Rypkema says:

    What a tremendous, well needed project! It seems not only a tribute to Parnes and Gordon but also to John Chris Jones and his Design Methods. What a blessing to see a non-hipster, honest and humble historical perspective (I would have as expected nothing less from you). I am really looking forward to reading the finished book! Seems like a must for the student reading list as well. Please keep me updated if at all possible. I will send an email.
    Best wishes, JanJaap Rypkema, Designer and Design Teacher

    Beautiful work! Have dropped in several times over the past year to dog-ear “Innovation Methods Mapping” and “The Other Design Thinking”. Reminds me of another favorite, Mintzberg’s “Strategy Safari: A Guided Tour Through The Wilds of Strategic Management”. Thank you for sharing!
