Years of The Future – How To Make Design Continue to Permeate Innovation
How can we continue to future proof the unknown? Design is often the way.The idea of design often includes the job, work, construction, activity, purpose, embodiment, and use of that which does not exist yet. It has encompassed critical path analysis, operations, and in the beginning many methods of the scientific approach as well as design science ( if such a thing can be said ) often coming very close to pure science and engineering rather than the larger imagery and poetry of broader ideas and thoughts which design is keen to involve itself. But is that enough ? Should there be more ? There always is.
With larger efforts to integrate and shift to user participatory involvement, political, ideological, psychological, managerial, administrative, legal and economical aspects, a democratic model became part of the vocabulary of design and thus ” innovation ” as a mechanism for change entered into the minds of firms who put design front and center in their ethos for greater successes, but again why ? Could there be even more ? We are on that cusp of that focus.
In Investigating Design we see how specific models of systematic design mindsets and toolsets can lay controlled and rectilinear way of seeing not only for design as a value added system and way of achieving specific outcomes as well as integrating a full poetic capability for an even greater value to those who use such systems. But in the next generation of change, we see the full possibilities of how emerging technologies such as classical AI, quantum computers implementing AI functionalities and yet to be discovered capabilities will push even further what design and design thinking can uncover for those that embrace such tools and emerging modalities. The future is clearly designed.
