Practical Empathy with Indi Young

We’re excited to announce that Indi Young will be introducing her new book: Practical Empathy – For Collaboration and Creativity in Your Work.

Conventional product development focuses on the solution. Empathy is a mindset that focuses on people, helping you to understand their thinking patterns and perspectives. Practical Empathy will show you how to gather and compare these patterns to make better decisions, improve your strategy, and collaborate successfully.

Speaker

For the past 20 years, Indi Young has been pioneering ways to understand customers and employees in order to support them better. Most organizations have developed awareness and expertise at gathering big data–the numbers that track what and how people have done things. These same organizations, however, are inexpert at understanding why. The messy and divergent reasoning and motivations that drive people’s decisions are what Indi helps you tune in. She is expert at gathering the thoughts that lie deeper than simple preferences, opinions, and desires. And she is expert at helping you solidify patterns and sort through the wavelengths to focus on particular channels so you can support people in more powerful ways.

We also used the survey to learn more about what you think of IxDA Munich, and how we might improve it. If you’d like to add to the comments here, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Ladies and Gentlemen! We are very pleased to announce that we are launching the 2013 IxDA Munich survey today! It takes less than 6,5 minutes to complete. And what’s even better: it’s absolutely anonymous. So send in your answers lickety-split, and look forward to the numbers later in January 2014.

If you feel like you’re having déjà vu then you’re right! We’ve recycled last year’s questions (and most of this posting too) but nothing gets us nerdy types more excited than having comparable data. In the end would like to aggregate our ongoing sets year after year in order to get a bigger picture of how the Munich IxD community is growing.

If you consider yourself a part of the Munich IxD community you are invited to complete the online-survey here.
