Dancing with ambiguity: Causality behavior, design thinking, and triple-loop-learning

  title={Dancing with ambiguity: Causality behavior, design thinking, and triple-loop-learning},
  author={Larry J. Leifer and Martin Steinert},
  journal={Information, Knowledge, Systems Management},
Over the past thirty years, a powerful methodology for innovation has emerged from engineering and design thinkers in Silicon Valley. It integrates human, business and technical factors in problem forming, solving and design: “Design Thinking.” This human-centric methodology integrates expertise from design, social sciences, business and engineering. It is best implemented by high performance project teams applying diverse points-of-view simultaneously. It creates a vibrant interaction… CONTINUE READING
