Nudging Behavior: Helping People to Change and Think Differently

At its heart, while the value methodology redefines problems in terms of functions (what things do rather than what they are), value engineering is a people-centered activity with a large creative portion. Value specialists always have to work hard to encourage people to think differently. However, changing the way that people think is HARD! People naturally resist change. We all know that we should eat better, exercise more, and save for the future - yet many of us struggle to do these things. Rationally we know they're the right thing to do, but we're irrational beings, and we behave irrationally. In other words we’re human – we have limited attention, limited bandwidth, limited self-control, and are heavily influenced by what others do. However, all is not lost! It is possible to influence irrational behavior and nudge people towards the right behavior (or thinking) that you're looking for.

 

Based on the disciplines of neuroscience, data analytics, cognitive science, behavioral economics, and anthropology, Behavioral Insights can be applied to successful change management interventions and more importantly, using methods drawn from experimental psychology, neuromarketing, and healthcare randomized control trials, can measure and provide real evidence of success or failure of those interventions. This partnering of neuroscience and change management, in effect NeuroChange, presents new and exciting ways to engage audiences, reduce resistance, realize benefits, and ultimately increase return on investment. This session will use real examples to show you how small nudges can be used to make large changes in user behavior. Understanding these techniques will allow you to improve your ability to help people change!

Keynote Address

Speaker: Marie Olson, Corridor Operations Director, Sound Transit

The Value of Maintaining Customer Service - Connecting Light Rail from Downtown Seattle to the Eastside

The Challenge: Performing heavy construction in an active light rail line that serves 80,000 riders a day. In 2020, Seattle’s Sound Transit will set out to connect light rail from downtown Seattle to its Eastside communities in what they are calling Connect 2020. At first glance, the fastest and easiest construction approach was a full, multi-week shutdown. However this would have required an eight week closure at ST’s highest ridership location. 

 

The Solution: Leverage the power of the Value Methodology to get the Sound Transit Operations Team to focus on the functions involved in maintaining safe and effective transit service through a heavy construction zone. Learn how VM was used to create a plan to keep the line open through construction and how the voice of the customer served as the guiding principlethroughout the process.

6C - MVF Forum

This innovation forum will focus on presentation and discussion of “Latest Creativity Techniques for Innovative Ideas.” It is part of the continuing series of new, innovative techniques and approaches within the value methodology framework. It is consistent with what Larry Miles encouraged in the expansion of VE.

 

“All cost is for function. People want to eat fish not bait hook,” Lawrence D. Miles.

 

This forum is about Creativity which follows the function analysis phase and its use in discovering innovative ideas. The Forum will start with presentations of Creative Techniques and examples in projects, products, and processes to stimulate discussion and more importantly how they lead to innovative ideas.

 

Speakers:

  • Drew Algase, CVS-Life, FSAVE, Chairman MVF

  • Tammy Dow, CVS, PE, Director of the MVF

  • Bruce Lenzer, CVS-Life, FSAVE, CQM/OE, President MVF
