    • Are these Tokyo-Tech Specific (therefore Useless) Methods?
      • Short answer: Absolutely NOT.
        • Design Thinking is relatively new method , not well defined, and not widely spreaded yet.
        • They are not Tokyo-Tech specific (see below).
          • Many companies and ex-students are using our methods.
      • Encourage to google in ENGLISH!! ( Tokyo-Tech has dominated search results in Japanese 🙄 )
        • Image
      • IMPORTANT: We are interested in not ”Design Thinking” methods but rather “Engineering Design” methods.
      • Originally, Saito-sensei was a visiting researcher of Stanfod and he brought its ME310 and d.school design methods to EDP.
      • Tokyo-Tech and IDEO Tokyo created the initial educational materials for “Design Thinking Fundamental” course.
      • Why Stanford and IDEO?
      • Every year, the faculty team is improving the materials in accordance with the situation of EDP .
        • Especially Tokyo-Tech students are not good at creating POVs. 🤔
        • ASIDE: I (Kado) DO NOT LIKE affinity-diagram and brainstorming both are famous for “Design Thinking”. 😣
      • We know that “Referenceability” matters. 🔎
    • DESIGN YOUR DESIGN RPOCESS !!
      • We think our methods are NOT the best or one-fit-all perfect one.
      • There are various kinds of themes in EDP-B/C.
      • So, we encourage you to “Design Your Design Process” specific to your theme.
        • 守破離(DTF, EDP-A, and EDP-B/C <- now here)
