To get the best idea, generate more ideas and select the best one!
Louise's MBO-students are expected to be creative and solution-oriented. Within their education, attention is paid to the design process - but often in a very strict manner. In her design research Louise develops additional methods that can inspire and help her students to create more ideas and solutions for one design problem.
She uses theory on creative thinking and empirical iterations with her students to find the best ways to do this. Therefore she's making a toolbox to be more creative in the (technical) design process.
At this moment the toolbox has tree steps:
- Define (define your problem)
- Generate (generate more ideas)
- Select (select the best idea)
- Create (create a solution)
