A Short Theory of Failure

RSS-Feed

Abstract:
Failures are a key concept in design thinking. They are discussed as a resource for learning, whereas fear of failure would be a major block to creative activity. We attempt to clarify the term by reconstructing “failures” as “inconclusive outcomes” in the Dynamic Creativity Framework. This includes a definition of key terms, the specification of hypotheses, a brief consideration of empirical evidence and discussion of practical implications.
