CITO research seminar "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience"

You are cordially invited to a research seminar hosted by CITO and the MIS Department on Wednesday November 8 at 4pm in the Quinn Building room Q233. Professor Richard J. Boland Jr. from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University will discuss a theme he has been developing under the working title "Design of a Visual Thinking Environment for Creating Knowledge of Situated Organizational Experience". Dick explains; "As part of a larger effort to promote design thinking in management, I explore the design of a visual thinking environment for reflecting upon the personal experience of acting responsibly in an organizational setting. In developing this visual thinking environment, I will synthesize ideas from several key authors: the philosopher John Dewey, the art theorist Rudolph Arnheim, the novelist Walker Percy and the language theorists George Lakoff and Mark Johnson. Using Dewey, I characterize the organizational actor as actively engaging organizational life and seeking its betterment. Using Rudolph Arnheim, I depict the organizational actor as being centered in a multidimensional situation, which is experienced as force fields. Using Walker Percy, I emphasize the existential experience of the organizational actor, and the queer way in which language involves a dynamic of reversals, rotations and transcendence. Using Lakoff and Johnson, I emphasize that the predicaments experienced by the organizational actor are based on the experience of being embodied and confronting the problem of self and other. I then propose the design of a visual thinking environment in which the individual can visualize the changing field of forces in their situation, and can explore possibilities for seeking organizational betterment." ALL WELCOME (please circulate)
