Because once you have too many people, it also makes you very slow. Five thousand developers is a lot of developers to coordinate (PM#11 March 2012). For the project manager, previous development efforts had seemed like a “trauma because of the many years involved [. ]. There were so many iterations and so much money was put into it” (PM#11 March 2012). Design thinking therefore seemed to be the answer to how to become more agile in development projects. From the project manager’s perspective, it seemed reasonable to begin the project with just one other colleague.

As it turns out those new ideas differed significantly from the project manager’s initial prototype. At some point in the teamwork the project manager mentioned that she is “well aware of what the customer wants” (TM#1 September 2012). It is, however, not what the team came up with. Two of the team members now openly addressed the knowledge gap between the project manager, the developer, and the rest of the team. ” (TM#1 September 2012). The project manager was initially convinced that the setup was reasonable in order to avoid another development project that was “missing a clear focus” and that would “support all the little deviations [.

The average scores for each measure were then summed across all measure to form a single creative output score for each team. We predict that teams that empathize with more customers will have a higher creative output. The categories were designed based on two primary factors. The first factor is the overall program goals of CLP. CLP encourages the participants to drive towards solutions that are novel in the healthcare space, yet relevant and meaningful to their customers. The second factor influencing the design of the evaluation comes from accepted definitions of creativity as the production of novel and useful ideas (Amabile 1996b).
