Innovation=Looking + Understanding + Making


In a recent issue of the Harvard Business Review you will find a list of 36 effective methods for innovation based on the work of the Luma Institute. These 36 methods fall into three broad categories each breaking down into three subcategories:

  1. LOOKING: observing human experience through ethnographic, participatory or evaluative research;
  2. UNDERSTANDING: Analysing challenges and opportunities through people & systems, patterns & priorities and problem framing;
  3. MAKING: Envisioning future possibilities through concept ideation, modelling & prototyping and design rationale.

Together these different categories and subcategories can make up your path of innovation.

What’s your preferred path?
