The report highlights many design thinking qualities that we identified:
"In terms of key competencies it was felt team members need to have strong communications skills and an appreciation of the role of other disciplines in the innovation process. Most felt it was also important to approach problems from the user's perspective and to have a high tolerance for ambiguity. An ability to be entrepreneurial was also seen as a key attribute. In terms of personal characteristics, openness, empathy, passion and respect for others were all mentioned. The concept of 'paternity' was also used to describe the ability to co-create an idea and then let it go." (p. 5)
I wonder whether we could tailor assignments much more towards building on the multi-disciplinary nature of our students.
