We use a three step methodology (divergent, convergent, and emergent) in the application of humorous improvisation to technical innovation entitled Improvisational Design of Engineering Alternatives (IDEA).

A paper on the use of humorous improvisation in the divergent thinking step of the three step process above - Ludovice, P.; Lefton, L.; Catrambone, R. “Improvisation for Engineering Innovation,” Proc. ASEE National Meeting, Louisville, KY, Paper AC-2010-1650, (2010).

A more detailed paper on the application of this three-step process to technical innovation - Ludovice, P.; Lefton, L.; Catrambone, R. “Humorous Improvisation Tailored for Technical Innovation,” Proc. ASEE National Meeting, Cookeville, TN, (2013).
