Analyzing the Effects of Time Management in Design Thinking Processes

Dr. Matthias Uflacker


With our project we aim to find out how manageable time is in Design Thinking projects and whether time management influences the creativity and innovation potential of the project team. To this end we want to identify currently existing approaches and methods for time management applied in Design Thinking projects. Our goal is to identify obstacles and opportunities for time management and to identify what constitutes to “good” and “bad” time management in Design Thinking. After gaining this information through interviews and observations of projects we then use the information to analyze the impact of good and bad time management on Design Thinking projects and participants. Ultimately we want to create a guide for time management in design thinking projects to enable design thinkers to use their time as effective and efficient as possible.
