Hear me out for a second: What if we tried bee-centered design?

Human-Centered Design Is Broken. Here’s a Better Alternative
  • The author questions the value of human-centered design and suggests thinking of a new approach — bee-centered design.
  • The idea of bee-centered suggests that successful for human ecosystems comes more easily when you design as if you’re designing for more sensitive creatures like a bee.
  • While centering the human perspective allows us to make important gains, it doesn’t scale. In an interdependent system, continually over-prioritizing the needs and desires of a single component will eventually cause the entire system to collapse.
  • Bee-centered design is about shifting our mindset to open up a much-needed new perspective for the things we create.
  • Reasons why bee-centered thinking is effective:
    • The “canary in the coal mine” mentality
    • Common goal
    • Bee-centered design widens our view of the world
