Project Report

The concepts of datainformationknowledge and wisdom have always been among my research interests. This was my semester report at IT Product Design studies where I depicted four semester projects from a tacit knowledge perspective taking Ikujiro Nonaka’s work in knowledge management area as an inspiration.

User’s tacit knowledge can be extremely valuable source of valid ideas in design processes. However, it is hard to communicate this kind of knowledge. During four semester projects, I observed that different collaborative design techniques seemed to foster different means of revealing people’s deepest  dreams, knowledge and wishes in terms of design. This kind of knowledge can be particularly useful for designers who are designing for and with the aforementioned people.
