Tech design with thought

CNet has a good interview with Don Norman, designer extraordinaire and author. I’d highly recommend his books, they’ll get you thinking about design in new ways. Best passage from the interview:

“It was only the development of the factory, the industrialized revolution, then later the white collar revolution that everybody had to be in their offices at the same time.

But guess what? We’re now in a world society. Making sure we’re all in the office at the same time assumes we’re all in the same time zone…I think we’ll find interesting mixes of scheduled activities where everyone must be encountered in more flex time, more flexibility.”

A Model for Change

Change is constant – we all deal with it, we all complain about it. We all do it. In a 2008 study titled “The Enterprise of the Future”, IBM surveyed over 1,000 CEOs around the world. 83% of those surveyed said they expect their organization to undergo substantial change. But only 61% of those executives believe they have managed change successfully in the past.  Why the disconnect? If change is so constant, why are we so bad at it?

Do you ever have trouble getting your living room temperature just right? It gets cold outside, so you bump the heat up. Whoops, too much, now you’re too hot. Down with the thermostat. Wait, now it’s freezing, turn up the heat! Cycle after cycle, until finally you get it dialed in just right. Now you can fire up the TV and binge-watch your favorite show. Congratulations, you understand systems thinking – that’s it in a nutshell.
