5.0 out of 5 stars Better written than `The Opposable Mind by the same author, 9 July 2010

This review is from: Design of Business: Why Design Thinking is the Next Competitive Advantage (Hardcover)
'The Design of Business' will give you a good basic overview on why design thinking is the next competitive advantage. It covers the fine balancing act between validity and reliability, or combining intuitive thinking with analytical thinking to get design thinking.

The concept 'design thinking' is not a new concept actually but it is here nicely introduced with all its benefits together with powerful business cases to illustrate the importance: P&G's "Connect + Develop", Herman Miller, Target, IDEO, RIM, Cirque du Soleil, and many others.

For the moment analytical thinking still runs the corporations so there is indeed some window for improvement on the level of business thinking, innovation, decision making and strategy. In this respect the author is convincing towards the reader to stimulate his/her thinking skills towards design thinking.

There is a little bit of focus on recruiting Masters of Fine Arts graduates into the business, although it has been overlooked by the author that there are already many design thinkers out there in business.

'The Design of Business' is a great and easy read with an important message towards all industries and a very important message for innovative approaches.
