dchat-david-kelleyIDEO founder, Stanford professor and d.school lead creator David Kelley joined us for #dchat this week. It was an hour-long discussion that covered his latest book “Creative Confidence” as well as questions we fielded from Twitter, our host d.school Teaching Fellow Adam Selzer and from d.school fellows Anne Gibbon, Caitria O’Neill, and Margaret Hagan. David even described what a creatively confident world would look like. You can watch the hour-long discussion (minus a few feed glitches) here:

Or you can go through individual segments. Here are those segments based on questions David was able to get to during #dchat. Above each question is a link to David’s response:

Answer: Managing groups of varying size

tdeepti (via UStream): large creative teams can get unwieldy. How does one know when is the right ‘critical mass’?

Answer: Making the career switch to design thinking Part 1 | Part 2

We’ve broken down the feed into highlights addressing these and other questions, and you can take a look through all of the subsections on our Ustream feed.

Here are questions David wasn’t able to get to. But we hope to bring these questions up as points of discussion in upcoming #dchat events (Tues. at 6pm PT). In the meantime, we encourage you to offer responses both in the comments and on Twitter. Tag your responses on Twitter with #dchat and we’ll curate them. In the meantime, thanks to everyone who tuned in and participated this week!

Question for David from Fred Leichter: I’ve heard you talk about marrying design thinking with data analysis. Can you talk about how you see this happening and some examples of where it might work?
