I have wondered if being a skilled Design Thinking facilitator is something that companies would value? This week I want to investigate this by highlighting two articles I have found of interest today and Thursday, on Tuesday I will publish my blog and Wednesday will highlight an article for the non-profit community.
Eric Morrow, a design thinker from IBM and previously LUMA, wrote the article below. He says that have a skilled trained facilitator makes Design Thinking more productive. He says this is particularly important during the Ideation phase. The facilitator will guide the participants through the process from empathy/ethnographic research through to the development of a rough prototype.
Do you think an external Design Thinking facilitator is necessary?
