Looking for good ideas

In this talk Katja Hölttä-Otto discusses results from recent and past research on where to look for good ideas for new products. Common sources and ways to find them include users and user interviews or ideation methods. These all take many forms and can be extended and improved to help identifying even better or more novel ideas.
