Visual methods of knowledge transfer and a first foray into Open Innovation by David Grant

While putting together my design portfolio with my supervisor during my final year of my undergraduate degree in Product Design and Innovation we were casually discussing my employment prospects and my plans for the future.

Outperforming experts using simple models: improving planning information by cutting the complexity by Abigail Hird

Outperforming experts using simple models: improving planning information by cutting the complexity by Abigail Hird
Predicting the future is tough. This is especially true in New Product Development planning as uncertainty is inherent in innovation and design. After all, it wouldn’t be new if it weren’t innovative. Even the most intensively-deliberated, resource-consuming and best-laid planning efforts regularly result in huge overruns.
