Section: HUMAN BEHAVIOUR IN DESIGN WORKSHOP
The paper reviews the empirical research on human behaviour in design presented at past ICED and Design conferences. While a quarter of all conference papers dealt with aspects of human behaviour, only 40% of these papers referred to the relevant psychological literature on research methods, cognition, team processes and organizational aspects of product development. The paper discusses if there is a paradigm change towards more empirical research on designing and how design science could benefit from drawing more on existing research on human behaviour to then explain the specifics of designing.
