Posted by Greg Van Alstyne in Uncategorized.

As part of nextMEDIA Toronto’s master class series, OCAD’s Strategic Innovation Lab (sLab) gave a didactic workshop on the design ecosystem, on November 30, 2009. In a packed room at the Design Exchange we presented a few theoretical and practical tools for finding, framing, and maximizing innovation opportunities in the digital media landscape.

Delivered by Dr. Robert K. Logan, Chief Scientist, and Greg Van Alstyne, Director of Research, sLab, the workshop briefly described the actors and roles in the design ecosystem. Specifically, we focused on the power and place of design thinking in innovation, and asked, What are the roles of problem finding, problem framing and problem solving within the innovation process?
