On the tenth anniversary of the founding of the first university-based School of Design Thinking, Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) has launched the website: www.thisisdesignthinking.net. Insider reports from worldwide companies and organizations as well as interviews and opinions on many aspects of Design Thinking are available to everyone.
The Hasso Plattner Institute of IT Systems Engineering in Potsdam with its HPI School of Design Thinking (active since winter semester 2007/2008) maintains especially close ties with its sister institute in Stanford. The partners carry out collaborative teaching and research in the field of user-friendly innovation.
Three scientists from the research program— Eva Köppen, Jan Schmiedgen und Holger Rhinow – have now created the web platform www.thisisdesignthinking.net. “Since 2007 we have been occupied in our teaching and research with various positions on the Design Thinking concept. This has led us to offer the interested public firsthand insight into how companies and organizations adapt and implement it,” said HPI director Prof. Christoph Meinel.
It’s not only about success stories. “We show the entire spectrum of perspectives on Design Thinking. You can also find reports on failures, surprising applications, and very individual practices,” said the HPI director.
