Systems thinking in innovation project management: A match that works

Maria Kapsali
2011 International Journal of Project Management  
This paper discusses why conventional project management practices lead to the failure of publicly funded innovation deployment projects, and investigates how the use of systems thinking in project management  ...  The key finding is that systems thinking methods provide the flexibility to manage innovativeness, complexity and uncertainty in innovation projects more successfully.  ...  These are two important functions in systems thinking, which is a conceptual framework, providing constructs for the attributes and functions of systems.  ...

Developing computational design creativity systems

D. C. Brown
2013 International Journal of Design Creativity and Innovation  
Much of the research in the "AI in Design" area proceeds in this way: for example, modelling routine design, analogical reasoning, or configuration, and then building systems that instantiate those models  ...  The paper points to a variety of factors that will need to be studied and understood in detail in order to build such systems.  ...  The crucial conceptual processes include Conceptual Combination, Conceptual Expansion, Analogy, Mental Models, and Knowledge.  ...

Openness and Security Thinking Characteristics for IoT Ecosystems

Bahtijar Vogel, Miranda Kajtazi, Joseph Bugeja, Rimpu Varshney
2020 Information  
In this paper, we propose a model for IoT practitioners and researchers, who can adopt a sound security thinking in parallel with open IoT technological developments.  ...  A novel model is conceptualized with those characteristics followed by several key aspects important to design and secure future IoT systems.  ...  Therefore, in light of our proposal for a continuous security thinking approach, we argue that concepts and models towards conceptualizing security in IoT can be both innovative and risky at the same time  ...
