Annual Meeting of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, Hyatt Regency San Francisco, San Francisco, California, USA

 

description

Innovation is a key element for the future of human factors, both as a discipline and as a professional society. However, formal training of innovation processes is absent from the human factors curriculum. Furthermore, published studies about innovation methodologies in human factors manuscripts are scarce. Consequently, practitioners are relying on their own experience and intuition to introduce novel product development techniques in their organization. Therefore, the goal of this panel is to discuss the innovation techniques that are employed by some of the most innovative companies in the technology domain. Human factors and user experience team leaders will present how they have formulated innovation strategies among team members and their impact on product development.
