One of the rituals we have at Carbon Five is a weekly brown bag book club. We typically discuss technical books or have guest speakers come and chat.
Recently we’ve introduced design-related topics to the mix and last week we read and discussed the d.school Bootcamp Bootleg. It’s a deep dive into design modes (high-level process areas) and methods (activities anyone can do) for collaborative design compiled by the folks at the Stanford of Design. The Bootcamp Bootleg made for a lively lunch and got us jazzed to get out of the office and try some of the methods.
Because the document is quite dense but doesn’t have a table of contents, we put together a diagram of the various modes and methods to facilitate our discussion:
