The fragility of human-centred design, PhD thesis by Marc Steen

I studied how researchers and designers in human-centred design balance their attempts to move towards others (users and fellow project-team members) and towards openness (learning and creating new things) with their tendencies to stay close to the self (their own ideas, knowledge, methods and skills) and to create closure (to draw conclusions and to deliver results).
