Uxpa creativity workshop peter otto 1

  1. 1. A technique for rapid idea generation! ! ! ! ! Peter Otto UK UXPA 21 March 2013
  2. 2. Constrain:•  Format (e.g. paper only)•  Time (set time limit and number of solutions)•  Tools (no computers, just sharpies)…to avoid getting into detail
  3. 3. De-constrain:•  Technologies (anything is possible) •  Scope (no project limitations)•  Resources (whatever it takes, it can be done!)…to break out of preconceptions, heuristics andbiases
  4. 4. Anything is possible.
  5. 5.            Share in a group.                
  6. 6. Personality (Curiosity and Idea Generation (Fluency,Tolerance for Ambiguity) Originality, Incubation and Illumination)Motivation (Intrinsic, Confidence (Producing,Extrinsic and Sharing andAchievement) Implementing)
  7. 7. Let’s put the technique in practice:

  10. 10. Examples: Design a device to amuse a dog…Design a device to communicate with aliens…Design a device to overcome traffic jams…Design a device to change the weather…
  11. 11. In a group of 3 design 3 solutions !in 3 minutes.!!Share some of you ideas…!
  12. 12. A more serious task to follow…
  13. 13. Design for Star Treck•  Travel into a future 300 years from now
  14. 14.

  15. 15. Turning the output into something useful:!!Extract key qualities and design drivers!!Translate ideas into today’s technology!
