You have to be determined to get better results somehow and it will help to try unconventional thinking and synthesize all necessary thought blocks into fresh insight.
Contemporary world becomes over complex, hyperconnected, interdependent. To shape holistic viewpoints and come up with premium solutions to many thorny issues, design concerns, besides information-based analysis, synthesis is a process that merges a dichotomy or in other words, the “for” and “against” perspectives for creating something that does not exist.
It involves not only putting the bits together but blending them in such a way that the emergent whole is somehow more than the sum of its parts, fresher, stronger, more influential.
Cognitive synthesis: Analysis answers the ‘what’ and ‘how’ questions while synthesis answers the ‘why’ and ‘what for’ questions. incorporate thesis and antithesis into a higher level of understanding. The mind with cognitive synthesis embraces diverse viewpoints, integrating them into more objective views about situations that people intend to understand.
A synthetic mind is future-oriented, holistic, using both analysis and synthesis to create new knowledge, fresh insight, deepen understanding, and integrate multiple pieces into a holistic perspective, focus on long-term problem solving, without ignorance of emergent trends. Open critical debate, constructive feedback, healthy argument is needed to stimulate diverse viewpoints which can be synthesized into more objective perceptions or creative insight for solving problems effectively.
Capability synthesis: In adapting to the ever-changing environment, the capability development cycle is significantly shortened. Businesses are able to integrate modular capabilities into more complex and differentiated capabilities to implement their business strategy. Capability synthesis is the right combination of capability integration and innovation. The synthetic capabilities usually are difficult to duplicate, as there are organizational learning and cultural ingredients in it.
Integration is a strategic response to business demands which give rise to the outcomes to be sought.There are a variety of integrations such as technical information technology integration, operational integration, governance integration; customer experience integration, etc. Capability synthesis involves integrating quality information, bridging siloed functions and underlying structures, innovating/optimizing/ orchestrating business processes, binding up varying business components, and using IT as a superglue to synthesize a unique set of core competency.
Design synthesis: Creativity is a synthesis of imagination with which you create new ideas and the concreteness with which you can transform ideas into valuable work. Design as a creative activity requiring fresh mindsets, powerful tools, efficient procedures It usually involves both analysis and synthesis procedures. Every synthesis is built upon the results of a preceding analysis, and every analysis requires a subsequent synthesis in order to verify and correct its results.
The design process with creative synthesis necessitates the need for an ability of divergent thinking, a novelty-seeking behavior, and a “putting together” convergence scenario. Imagination and knowledge are both important to design excellence. Knowledge is fundamental. Imagination is more crucial to reinvent product or services; synthesize them into unique design competency as part of the corporate innovation portfolio. Rather than focus on one method, as a team with broad expertise across a range of disciplines, there are choices of tools or methods appropriate for the challenge. It’s important to visualize and synthesize user experience, design and develop personalized experience that fits their needs with personal touch.
You have to be determined to get better results somehow and it will help to try unconventional thinking and synthesize all necessary thought blocks into fresh insight. Synthesizing problem-solvers are good at creating business synergy by blending different pieces of components in such a way that the emergent whole is somehow more than the sum of parts to bring great results and make high influence.
