Design Your Thinking by Pavan Soni (Hardcover)
Creative problem-solving is at the heart of innovation, and some of the world's most innovative companies are very systematic in following this approach. Most people would assume that creativity and discipline can't coexist, and that only when resources are replete and the talent best-in-class can one be creative. But nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, creativity thrives amid constraints and calls for great discipline.
Pioneered by IDEO and Stanford d.school, design thinking is one such approach that draws inspiration from the realm of product design. However, it shouldn't be narrowly associated with the world of start-ups and technology or thought of as something limited to product development.
Design thinking is a unique and path-breaking approach to problem-solving. Written in an engaging and accessible style, this book will equip the reader with the right tools and skills to solve problems creatively.
