For all of our sophisticated and often technical discussions of user experience, there is one area of experience that we have found difficult, if not impossible, to consider with the same degree of sophistication. In a time when we are obsessed with big data and facts, we have forgotten how to talk about principles and creativity without resorting to theories of cognitive psychology and the social sciences. My presentation will introduce a different perspective on creativity that goes beyond the craft of design process and will explore what principles are as the foundation of the flourishing enterprise. We are coming to a time when our ability to understand what is significant in human experience will affect not only the users of our products and services but all of those who participate in our most creative enterprises.
