Week 8’s Blog

According to the article “5 lenses of adventurers thinking“,I learned what they are. 5 lenses refer to negative space,thinking sideways, thinking backwards, rethinking and parkour. Negative space is what is not. Negative space is that physical emotional and longitudinal amorphousness that is not the focus or the subject, bur the physical, durational and perceptional context in which it exists, as the second drawing above. Thinking sideways is an extension of empathetic thinking and builds awareness of how our personal preferences dictate the way we interact with others – work colleagues and customers. Thinking Backwards ​uses Life Cycle Analysis information to consider where a project or product ends, and how the elements and functions that make up a product, system or campaign can be improved for a more precise, economical, robust result. Rethinking involves rediscovering and exploiting your core values. Parkour thinking is the most risk-positive thinking strategy . When successful it results in an improbable innovation leap.
During the class and through the require reading “design bootleg”, I learned Feedback capture matrices facilitate real-time capture of feedback on presentations and prototypes.
There are several things we can follow when doing it:
– Section off a blank page or whiteboard into quadrants. Draw a plus sign in the upper left quadrant, a delta sign in the upper right quadrant, a question mark in the lower left quadrant, and a light bulb in the lower right quadrant.
– Fill in the matrix as you give or receive feedback. Place things one likes or finds notable in the upper left (plus sign). Constructive criticism goes in the upper right (delta sign). Questions raised go in the lower left (question mark). And new ideas spurred go in the lower right (light bulb). If you’re giving feedback, strive to give input in each quadrant (especially the upper two: “likes” and “wishes”).
