  40. 40. Industrial Design Student “This assignment was great. I learned true designing skills. I learned a lot about design and making other people understand. I also learned about business. How to analyze a business in one single framework, the business model canvas.”
  41. 41. Industrial Design Student “The fact that we needed to dig into the empathy map of customers was great. We had to translate thoughts and communication back to the business models. We needed to come up with something that was interesting to the audience.”
  42. 42. Industrial Design Student “You learn a lot from looking at the positive things in a performance. It is quite hard to see good things and to come up with positive things as feedback. But this is very useful. You see things, also from other teams, and you learn from the things that you did not do.”
  43. 43. Industrial Design Student “Last week, I had to report another project. I did that with more energy and a faster pace than before. It was great. I used pictures and colors instead of bullet points and text. And guess what, it just worked.”
  44. 44. Industrial Design Student “I learned a lot about teamwork. The value of teamwork. The process of creation gets easier if you work in a team. It opens opportunities to discuss your work and to get various angles of the same issue. It is great to use the talents of different people to achieve the goal.”
  45. 45. Industrial Design Student “I learned about visual communication. Also regarding presentations and slide decks. You can tell a lot with visuals. You get the attention of the audience in this way. You use presentation tools for the red thread while you give the performance yourself.”
  46. 46. Industrial Design Student “The approach was great. We learn a lot more as students when the lecturer is enthusiastic. Your energy and way of teaching taught me a lot. The way of getting people interested was very interesting. I got the feeling after the first lecture I want to know everything there is to know about business models!”
  47. 47. Industrial Design Student “You also believed in our abilities as design students. It was a high level of trust. You also expect us to come up with ideas. We were free to choose what we liked. It was very challenging and rewarding. There was enough direction in the assignment, but also freedom and space to act and design. You also approached us as designers, not as business people.”
  48. 48. Industrial Design Student “I got a new interpretation on my presentation. The fact that we had to present in front of a jury of real business people and design people was just great. That taught me a lot. The set-up of the assignment is great. It is really structured and we had a clear roadmap for the journey from the very first lecture.”
  49. 49. Industrial Design Student “I learned to never excuse myself. I will take on the perspective of getting the 8,0 up to a 9,5 on the scale of maximum 10. I will focus on excel my own talent. I really enjoyed the overall positive feeling we got when working on this assignment. That was due to the way we were instructed to give feedback.”
  50. 50. Talking to an expert on Industrial Design
  51. 51. “My background is Industrial Design. At Alphachimp Studios, we use design and design thinking to solve big business problems. We facilitate the thinking within companies. We as designers help companies to understand complex situations and decide what to do next. We organize and communicate their thinking. As an Industrial Designer, you can easily stage the thinking for businesses and organizations.” Peter Durand, Alphachimp Studio Inc., US
