Managing Tensions in Research Consortia with Design Thinking Artifacts


Stähelin, Dario Luca; Dolata, Mateusz; Schwabe, Gerhard (2022). Managing Tensions in Research Consortia with Design Thinking Artifacts.

Abstract

A common goal can inspire companies and research institutions to embark on an adventure together despite competition. However, tensions arise soon after a project starts. While tensions are a focal part of innovative processes, research consortia need to pay close attention to them to avoid malicious developments. In this study, we investigate a research consortium consisting of industrial partners and research institutions. We identify the root cause of tensions and explore how Design Thinking artifacts can catalyze the positive energy of tensions while reducing negative impacts. We find that Design Thinking artifacts are pivotal in managing tensions and adapting their role depending on the context.
