Comparing design behaviours between teams with the same design background and teams with different design backgrounds during brainstorming
Authors: Yi Teng Shih
Abstract: This study concerned about cross-disciplinary team design behaviours in the brainstorming process. The aim was to better understand the similarities and differences in design behaviours between cross-disciplinary design teams and the same discipline design teams, and how cross-disciplinary designers may impact on team design processes. Protocol analysis was used to facilitate controlled observations and experimental analyses to investigate the research questions and objectives. All teams were required to think-aloud, verbally describing their activities during the design sessions. The preliminary findings were discussed in the following sections.
Keywords: Teamwork, Different Design Background, Protocol Analysis
