Didi-Huberman, Georges
Pollock, Griselda
Rancière, Jacques
Schweizer, Nicole
Valdés, Adriana
2014
Santiago de Chile, Ediciones Metales Pesados. 131 p.
Resumen: A partir de la obra de Alfredo Jaar y sus "estrategias visuales", los autores abordan el pensamiento actual sobre las imágenes, cuestionando la reflexión crítica, la resistencia política, las consecuencias negativas de la superabundancia de (ciertas) imágenes, la indiferencia ética y política ante las imágenes del sufrimiento, el consumo de imágenes previamente seleccionadas por otros, el papel crítico, reflexivo y político de la emoción, la mala prensa de palabras como "humanismo" o "compasión", contaminadas de sensiblería hipócrita.

Shaping things

Shaping things
Sterling, Bruce
Cambridge, Mass., Mit Press, 149 p.
Resumen: A guide to the next great wave of technology—an era of objects so programmable that they can be regarded as material instantiations of an immaterial system. Now, with Shaping Things, design gets full-court consideration in a powerfully argued thesis tracking the profession's trajectory toward a new product order...On top of being one of the most strikingly insightful little volumes on the design shelves, Shaping Things, designed by Lorraine Wild, is one of the most originally and empathically crafted pieces of evidence that artifacts do evolve, and that designers may hold the keys to a more sophisticated relationship to the things around us we take for granted.

Situated design methods

Situated design methods
Simonsen, Jesper
2014
Cambridge, Mass., Mit Press. 400 p.
Resumen: A handbook of situated design methods, with analyses and cases that range from designing study processes to understanding customer experiences to developing interactive installations. All design is situated—carried out from an embedded position. Design involves many participants and encompasses a range of interactions and interdependencies among designers, designs, design methods, and users. Design is also multidisciplinary, extending beyond the traditional design professions into such domains as health, culture, education, and transportation. This book presents eighteen situated design methods, offering cases and analyses of projects that range from designing interactive installations, urban spaces, and environmental systems to understanding customer experiences. Each chapter presents a different method, combining theoretical, methodological, and empirical discussions with accounts of actual experiences. The book describes methods for defining and organizing a design project, organizing collaborative processes, creating aesthetic experiences, and incorporating sustainability into processes and projects. The diverse and multidisciplinary methods presented include a problem- and project-based approach to design studies; a “Wheel of Rituals” intended to promote creativity; a pragmatist method for situated experience design that derives from empirical studies of film production and performance design; and ways to transfer design methods in a situated manner. The book will be an important resource for researchers, students, and practitioners of interdisciplinary design.

From products to services

From products to services: insights and experience from companies which have embraced the service economy
Young, Laurie
2008
Chichester, England, John Wiley & Sons. 353 p.
Resumen: Included are some of the most famous business names in the western world: Unisys, Ericsson, Michelin, Nokia and HP. For IBM it was Lou Gerstener’s ‘big bet’; at GE it was one of former CEO Jack Welch’s ‘four major strategies’ and, at General Motors, the financial services arm was its most profitable business for many years. Yet very little has been published on this profound transition. As a result, myths and idiocies abound. Some routinely claim that the ‘evolution from products through services to solutions’ is inevitable. Others think that manufacturing is being outsourced to China and India while American or European teenagers face a career in hamburger stalls. The truth is much more fascinating. To succeed in a service business, most functions of a product company need to change. Operations, management, recruitment, finance, sales, new product development and marketing must all be adjusted. So the move into service therefore involves huge risk caused by disruptive and radical change. What has pushed realistic business people in such widely different industrial sectors to take so large a risk? Does their experience contain lessons or warnings for others? Is the trend likely to continue and affect other parts of the world as their economies develop? Will India, China or other developing economies need to learn how to export service once their manufacturing industries mature? Written by a successful businessman who has been at the heart of these changes in several companies and, with case studies from companies like IBM, Unilever, BT, Michelin, Ericsson and Nokia, this book explores the experience of those who have made the transition; and some who have resisted it. It covers in depth subjects such as: strategic focus, change management, service operations, branding a service business, service sales and service marketing. It is the first major work on this subject.

Experience maps

Experience maps: journey maps, service blueprints, empathy maps
Curedale, Robert
2016
Topanga, CA., Design Community College. 400 p.
Resumen:In this book are described the most powerful tools available to craft a superior experiences for your customers and end users. These powerful and flexible methods are collectively known as experience maps. In the 20th-century product styling like advertising was about making people want things. These maps are a response to the realization that it is more efficient and successful to make products, services, and experiences that people want and need. They can be used to optimize the design of goods, services, architecture, spaces and interactions and to plan business strategy. Through applying these methods organizations can deliver a more compelling and valuable experience. Mapping builds consensus across your organization with stakeholders, to positively impact your entire organization and your bottom line. These methods are core strategic tools and I believe will become required skills for every working designer and manager.

The service innovation handbook

The service innovation handbook: action-oriented creative thinking toolkit for service organizations
Kimbell, Lucy
2014
Amsterdam, Bis Publishers, 240 p.
Resumen: This is an action-oriented book for managers and entrepreneurs searching ways to tackle issues they face in terms of developing and delivering services. The book focuses on service organizations, but has a broad interpretation of what services are. Directed to the business world and combines inspirational text that is full of examples, with the features of a useful handbook of practical methods with associated templates. The central argument is that managers and entrepreneurs designing service offerings will benefit from using approaches and methods from design and the arts, especially at the early stages of projects. Sometimes called “design thinking” or “design innovation”, such approaches help organizations explore and create new configurations of people and things that support users, customers, staff and partners in creating value together. In short, this book argues that design and arts-based approaches are valuable to managers and entrepreneurs designing services, when uncertainty and ambiguity are high. It shows when and how to use these approaches, introduces specific methods, reviews their strengths and limitations, and finally helps managers think through what it takes to start using them in projects and within teams and develop the culture and behaviours that access the creativity they support.
