Sonalysts has recently presented our work on design thinking methods to the Department of Defense Human Factors Engineering Technical Advisory Group (DOD HFE TAG). Mr. Steve Dorton (Sonalysts) led a panel discussion during the Human-Systems Integration/Human Factors Engineering (HSI/HFE) track entitled “Leveraging Design Thinking Concepts to Improve DOD Product Development.” The panel consisted of Mr. Dorton, Mr. Scott Tupper (CGI Federal), Mr. Chuck Curtis (NUWC NPT), and LT Nick Traglia (UWDC TAG). The panel discussion focused on sharing specific design thinking methods and insights, and a detailed discussion on how to make these rapid innovation events successful in a DOD acquisition environment and process.
