This Humantific book is dedicated to all those who strive to better understand the history of innovation methods construction, in order to more effectively create new tools that aid humans in tackling increasingly complex challenges and opportunities in our continuously changing world. In this book series, we are sharing how Humantific makes sense of innovation process models, historical and contemporary, spanning multiple communities of practice and an 80+ year period. This is not a "How To" book and not a book for innovation novices. It's not a book about design or design thinking. The focus of this study is to better understand innovation methods across the timeline of history in terms of knowledge evolution, design and architectural construction, versus judging the effectiveness of various methods. The ultimate goal of this project is to help move the art, science, and design of innovation process modeling forward into the 21st century. Anyone working on the R&D of customized method creation can benefit from this book and the analysis framework within. This is the first in a series for this ongoing project.
