The title of her session: Evolving Collaborative Intelligence. Zann covered so much ground and presented so many provocative frameworks that I can only offer you a few sound bites from my notes: Collaborative intelligence is more important than collective intelligence. Collaborative intelligence taps the diversity of individuals, manifesting principles of evolutionary design to adapt to continually changing ecosystems. What if life itself is a pattern recognizer?

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. JJG: This notion of building a better world for autistic people is where the work that we do as user experience designers really comes into play. These teams are often trying to move very quickly and are accustomed to certain styles of communication and certain styles of collaboration.

Strategy and Execution in an Increasingly Complex World

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Once upon a time, design and manufacturing were quite distinct steps in the development of products. But, as development cycles start to shrink, we saw the rise of design for manufacturability , that is, the close collaboration between engineering design and manufacturing so that products are as easy as possible to manufacture. Creative leaders are comfortable with ambiguity and encourage experimentation and innovation throughout their organizations.

Machines have a deep but narrow view of the world they were designed for. But, computers’ creative abilities are expanding rapidly, especially in areas like industrial design.

Blockages come from unsupportive superiors, a risk-aversive culture stifling innovation, a need for taking of credit by management, a lack of diversity of opinion and thought amongst staff, and simply the inertia of large organizations. This pattern has three phases: support and personal validation, connection to a community and/or network for practice and learning and finally, external validation.
