The Seven Da Vincian Principles
Curiosita – Unrelenting quest for continuous learning.
Dimostrazione – Test knowledge through experience,
persistence, learn from mistakes
Sensazione – The continual refinement of the senses, as the
means to enliven experience.
Sfumato – Willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and
uncertainty.
Arte/ Scienza – Balance between science & art, logic &
imagination, “whole brain” thinking.
Corporalita – Cultivation of grace, ambidexterity, fitness, and
poise.
Connessione – ..appreciation for the interconnectedness of all
things and phenomena. “Systems Thinking”.
From “How to Think like Leonardo Da Vinci” by Michael J. Gelb.
The Predilection Gap
Design Thinking
Analytical Thinking
100% Reliability
Intuitive Thinking
50/50 Mix
100% Validity
From Roger Martin’s “The Design of Business”
Engineering Versus Science
Scientists
– Understand why our world behaves the way it does (“laws of nature”)
– Study the world as it is
– Thinkers
Engineers
– Apply established scientific theories and principles to develop costeffective solutions to practical problems
 Cost effective
– Consideration of design trade-offs (esp. resource usage)
– Minimize negative impacts (e.g. environmental and social
cost)
 Practical problems
– Problems that matter to people
– Change the world
– Doers

Building on Experience
“Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes”
- Oscar Wilde
To make full use of the experiences of each
assignment, identify ways in which one could
do things differently, and better, in the future.
Four-stage learning cycle that puts this
reflective process into a framework for action.
