CRECOS 2010 Helsinki – Seminar on Creative and COmplex DeSign

Last week I was invited to present at a very interesting seminar on Creative and COmplex DeSign (CRECOS 2010) at Aalto University in Helsinki. The experience was a great opportunity to share my research and test some of its assumptions. Below I leave my slides (without the videos) and some pictures from […]

Product Design and Development 2.0 Applied C-K theory [to innovate in a digital age]

The purpose of this paper is to discuss some applied implications of the Concept-Knowledge Theory (C-K Theory) introduced by Armand Hatchuel and Benoît Weil in their 2003 paper. This analysis is required because in a new information age; where powerful IT tools provide the means to work in multiuser collaborative virtual spaces, and where advanced automated semantical indexing engines allow the knowledge to be more readily available than ever, the implications for a design theory of these characteristics is deep since the concepts as well as the knowledge can be accelerated and reinforced. But this can only happens if the right tools are applied understanding the nature of the underling process that dominates creativity and innovation in human endeavours.

Some of the tools and theories that will be explored here to understand the potential links and interactions with C-K theory are: Web 2.0 collaboration tools, computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), knowledge management and Henry W Chesbrough´s Open Innovation model.
