Enthusiasm is what a good idea deserves in the first place – and not the question “What do you mean by that?”
Behind every idea, success is waiting. Therefore, the scientific and economic discussion about ideas, their efficient generation and exploitation remains highly important. But: initially, the quality of an idea is not measured in terms of its content – rather, the point is for it to be appreciated as such in the first place. Before the evaluation of an idea comes the idea’s identification as an idea!
Understanding the idea develops the ability to evaluate it or modify it into a still better idea. Misunderstood ideas, however, are always lost potential – sad for the persons having them and hopeless for those needing them. For businesses, both cases can be economically disastrous.
What is surprising is the fact that neither scientific nor practically oriented research offer any relevant statements, research work or methods for semantically optimizing
ideas. With the development of the “d’Artagnan Principle”, this significant gap is now filled and methodically closed.

  1. 1. sabine fischer winterfeldtstrasse 33 d -10781 berlin mob: +49 172 3090660 mail: fischer@its-immaterial.com The idea: to finally fathom the essence of “idea“ in order to make ideas more efficient from within. is not IDEA Cause Solution Value IS isnot isnot IS IS The d`Artagnan-Principle Ideas not understood are lost potential. Let’s take, for example, the exponentially growing amount of information that characterises our age and makes it successful. It is gaining in com- plexity. We respond to this fact by generating ever new ideas. These ideas are the significant commodities of our time. They are the origin of the information and social media society. Unlike in previous times, we need more and more of them in order to be able to manage the effects on our lives, our work, as well as on our understanding and shaping of the conditions sur- rounding us. Reflected in fields such as creativity and innovation development or idea and innovation man- agement, the overall discussion of ideas is accordingly extensive. Innumerable, in part very valuable, theories, methods and principles have been developed from innumerable perspec- tives along the idea process chain. They enable us to develop ideas seemingly effortlessly. But is everything we call “idea“ really an idea? We know very well when something is not an idea although it may have been presented to us as one. An idea only exists as long as it is perceived as one. Perceiving here means understanding. Accordingly, an idea not understood is not labelled “idea“. So this is about the moment in which an idea is being uttered – and not understood. Hundreds of thousands of such idea promises can be found, maybe particularly, in businesses, but they still go unrecognised as “ideas!“. Often, abstracts of business plans only become clear after intensive study. Professional idea pools on the social web frequently suffer from obscurity. At the latest by the time the minutes are written, the results of idea workshops raise the question: “What did we actually mean by x or y?“ Ideas are discarded on grounds of their unintellegibility. Does this mean they are all worthless? Ideas are potential values. Discarding bad ideas is a good thing. Discarding ideas one hasn‘t understood is a bad thing. Ideas not understood are lost potential – a loss which may prove disastrous for individuals and businesses alike. Together with the D'ARTAGNAN-PRINZIP, IDEA-DESIGN was developed as a tool and method to produce, as well as safeguard the quality of, the adequate meaning of an idea.

  2. 2. sabine fischer winterfeldtstrasse 33 d -10781 berlin mob: +49 172 3090660 mail: fischer@its-immaterial.com The d’Artagnan Principle can be understood and used as a causal principle: __ Development of ideas Application of the d’Artagnan Principle identifies the essential units of meaning of an idea as early as in the process of ideation. It is easy to establish which units of meaning already exist and which are as yet missing. Thus, the d’Artagnan Principle facilitates the elaboration of a stable idea system in which creativity can freely develop. __ Semantic optimisation of ideas The comprehensibility of an idea i.e., the effect “idea!” can be produced. The idea is com- municated and identified as “idea!” Systemising the units of meaning of an idea produces and safeguards the intelligibility and appreciation of an idea as “idea”. __ Quality assurance during the implementation process of an idea When it comes to its conceptual elaboration and implementation, an idea has to prove its power especially through standing up to regular instances of general coordination between dif- ferent persons and their subjective views and interpretations. During the process, the concep- tion can be tested with regard to the semantically optimised idea in order to maintain its unique power – modified in the process or not. Users` Statements “The d’Artagnan Principle is already used successfully in businesses and universities. […] here, the pre-established systematics is enormously helpful. In view of our good experience we will now integrate an extended version of the d’Artagnan Principle into all our application forms.” (departure, Business Support and Service Agency for Creative Industries of the City of Vienna, Austria) “Putting an idea in a nutshell can be difficult for creative people because they are often too deeply entangled in their concept or too much in love wih an idea. Actually, they don’t want to realize that once you look at it closely it will not stand the test. With the d’Artagnan Principle we can help to identify and describe the problem, appreciate the creative achievement in the solution of the problem, grade the solution, improve the quality of the ideas submitted. And the description of an idea becomes more precise and more comprehensible.” (jovoto GmbH, Berlin, Germany) “With the d’Artagnan Principle we are provided with an instrument which neither predicts the market development nor the success of a particular idea; however, it shows very quickly whether an idea or a proposal is viable or not. […] It helps to realize almost immediately what is essential to an idea and in which way an idea is an answer to a real and relevant question.” (Birkhäuser+GBC AG, Basel, Switzerland) “The d’Artagnan Principle is a tool for intuitively putting ideas in a nutshell in such a way that they can be understood in their individual history. ‘History’ means in this context the idea’s origin or legitimacy, the idea itself, as well as the envisioned – and in the best case realistic – results, i.e. the effect of the idea.” (Commarco Group – Blumberry – Berlin, Germany) CONDENSATION AND CLARITY – IDEA-DESIGN Page 02 | October 2013 sabine fischer. meaning is the message
  3. 3. sabine fischer winterfeldtstrasse 33 d -10781 berlin mob: +49 172 3090660 mail: fischer@its-immaterial.com Page 03 | October 2013 Prof. Dr. Sabine Fischer is a business consultant and professor at the interface between busi- ness and design. Her main subjects are the creation of business processes in the environment of innovation, the connection between creative and strategic-economic developments as well as the much-needed preparation of knowledge across disciplines. She lectures at the University of Arts/University of St. Gallen, the Humboldt-Viadrina School of Governance, the College of Art and Design in Basel and the School of Design in Bern. She has established the innovative topic of “transdisciplinary management" in the digital mar- ket of economy, creativity, higher education and businesses. Sabine Fischer is considered the inventor of the "idea design” that can be defined as the intersection of systematic and creative development of innovations and changes in businesses and markets. Sabine Fischer presents and lectures at conferences and symposia, is a renowned expert for information in digital media, and author of numerous publications. In her doctoral dissertation “The contemporary use of the concept idea, the linguistic design of ideas, and their potential for semantic optimization” (2011) she developed the d’Artagnan Prin- ciple for semantic optimization and quality assurance. Prof. Dr. Hartmut Schröder: “Indeed, the d’Artagnan Principle fills a significant lacuna and will most likely spread quickly in the relevant fields of work.” sabine fischer. meaning is the message Short Biography
