An age-old profession: project management
49904757 1024x682
We are all so accustomed to business automation, computerization and constant change that we’ve learned to continuously adapt to new ways of working, and to accept that business will operate differently when the next big innovation comes along. Although it’s difficult to imagine how we did our jobs before laptops, smartphones and email, we succeeded in managing projects with the tools we had at our disposal. The reality of today’s technologies is that we spend a lot of time in email, Excel, MS Project and PPM systems (such as CA PPM). Much of our workday is spent tracking project progress, weighing and dealing with risks and issues and analyzi ...

Our Renewable Energy Challenge offered a unique opportunity to explore what might happen when we set aside a few hours of design support for various challenge contributions. Made possible by our challenge sponsor, The 11th Hour Project, three designers from IDEO's San Francisco studio selected ideas that could benefit from their particilar set of expertise. Here’s what happened: 1. Don’t Waste the Waste simplified biogas production with help from their designer Emily. Contributor Simon is spearheading biogas workshops and trying to gain awareness around biogas as a viable community option for renewable energy and we hope these visuals help. Ch ... Read More →

Common Misconceptions about Agile: There Is Only One Approach
Wrong
Summary: Many teams think they're agile. They might work in iterations and have a ranked backlog, but they don’t see the value they could be seeing. Usually that means they have a number of false impressions about agile. Read on to have three common misconceptions debunked and to learn what you need to do to make your agile transition successful. In my work, I meet many people who want to go agile, or think they already have. They might work in iterations. They might have a ranked backlog.

Building a Culture of Collaboration
Dm articlepattern 0021 1200x450
Over the past decade at frog, I’ve seen a fundamental shift in the way I work as a designer and researcher, and in what it means to be a creative agency: where we once designed to change customer behaviors, we now must design to impact both customer behaviors and the behaviors of our client companies. This has required a mind shift in the way we work and the tools we use. For many frogs, this mind shift happens naturally as we seek to deliver successful work, but as a global team we’ve needed to take this shift at scale. Over the past several years, we have been evaluating the tools, techniques, and approaches common across successful progra ... Read More →

NASA Warns That This Century Could See Crippling Megadroughts
Mh7iftqiavkljvegicr4
This week, NASA published its most robust study looking at drought prediction—and the news isn't good. Within the next century, the American southwest could experience a landscape-altering megadrought due to rising carbon emissions and global warming. Unlike other scenarios when "mega" is a prefix indicating something awesome, like a Mega Bowl or Megatron, this is definitely not the case here. NASA climate scientist Ben Cook explains bluntly why we should be very, very concerned. "Recent droughts, like the ongoing drought in California and the southwest and historical droughts like the Dust Bowl in the 1930s, these are naturally occurring dr ... Read More →

How Vegas is Building the New Ideal for American Cities
Las vegas urban development1
The Las Vegas Strip isn’t in Las Vegas. You’ve got to understand that before you can understand anything else about this glittering, 4.2-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard described by William L Fox as “the most aggressively branded and promoted concatenation of adult theme parks in the world”. It is also among the most visited places on Earth, having surpassed Mecca back in 1999. The Strip was created in Paradise, an idyllically named township of Nevada’s Clark County formed by hotel builders who had already built strategically outside city limits as a means of minimising taxes, dodging regulations and avoiding utility disputes with the city ...
