Storming Design Thinking

Making Sense of What Matters

Humantific responds to the Harvard Business Review article by Natasha Iskander.

“This week we are doing something we don’t usually do. In the last few weeks several readers have asked us, via twitter and email, what we thought of an article that appeared recently in the Harvard Business Review so we decided to make this the focus for this weeks’ post. What we thought would not fit in the little comments box over there so we will post it here for our readers…:-)

Upon reading that particular article in the Harvard Business Review by Natasha Iskander ambitiously entitled “Design Thinking is Fundamentally Conservative and Preserves the Status Quo” we were reminded that the storming of Design / Design Thinking is not new, taking on many forms over the years, from informed to uninformed and many shades in between.

With open minds we can see the storming is often useful, at other times counterproductive and occasionally just plain entertaining. For those who might not know, that storming is often coming from inside the design communities as much as from external players, competitors, detractors.”
