A comprehensive playbook for applied design thinking in business and management, complete with concepts and toolkits.
As many companies have lost confidence in the traditional ways of running a business, design thinking has entered the mix. Design Thinking for Strategic Innovation presents a framework for design thinking that is relevant to business management, marketing, and design strategies and also provides a toolkit to apply concepts for immediate use in everyday work. It explains how design thinking can bring about creative solutions to solve complex business problems. Organized into five sections, this book provides an introduction to the values and applications of design thinking, explains design thinking approaches for eight key challenges that most businesses face, and offers an application framework for these business challenges through exercises, activities, and resources. This is an essential guide for any business seeking to use design thinking as a problem-solving tool, as well as a business method to transform companies and cultures. The framework is based on work developed by Idris Mootee, the leading expert in applied design thinking, for an executive program in Design Thinking taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
