When designers realized this, they made design a big part of creating new products. Tuesday, September 13, 16 3.
Design Thinking, Tim Brown - Companies began to use design to create better products for costumers needs and wants. With this shift, the way a designer thought made a huge difference.

They did this to help improve patients and medical practitioners experience. Tuesday, September 13, 16 5. Design Thinking, Critical Question 1 - How did focusing on the design of a product help the sales of the product? Set the bar for the product, make sure the product is made from the best quality material, and has a good performance. What we need is an approach to innovation that is powerful, effective, and broadly accessible, that can be integrated into all aspects of business and society, and that individuals and teams can use to generate breakthrough ideas that are implemented and that therefore have an impact.
Design thinking, the subject of this book, offers just such an approach. Design thinking begins with skills designers have learned over many decades in their quest to match human needs with available technical resources within the practical constraints of business. By integrating what is desirable from a human point of view with what is technologically feasible and economically viable, designers have been able to create the products we enjoy today. Design thinking takes the next step, which is to put these tools into the hands of people who may have never thought of themselves as designers and apply them to a vastly greater range of problems.
Design thinking taps into capacities we all have but that are overlooked by more conventional problem-solving practices. It is not only human-centered; it is deeply human in and of itself. Design thinking relies on our ability to be intuitive, to recognize patterns, to construct ideas that have emotional meaning as well as functionality, to express ourselves in media other than words or symbols.
Nobody wants to run a business based on feeling, intuition, and inspiration, but an overreliance on the rational and the analytical can be just as dangerous.
The integrated approach at the core of the design process suggests a "third way. Seven years of undergraduate and graduate education and fifteen years of professional practice went by before I had any real inkling that what I was doing was more than simply a link in a chain that connected a client's engineering department to the folks upstairs in marketing. The very first products I designed as a design professional were for a venerable English machinery manufacturer called Wadkin Bursgreen.
The people there invited a young and untested industrial designer into their midst to help improve their professional woodworking machines. I spent a summer creating drawings and models of circular saws that were better looking and spindle molders that were easier to use.
I think I did a pretty good job, and it's still possible to find my work in factories thirty years later. But you will no longer find the Wadkin Bursgreen company, which has long since gone out of business. As a designer I didn't see that it was the future of the woodworking industry that was in question, not the design of its machines.
Only gradually did I come to see the power of design not as a link in a chain but as the hub of a wheel.
When I left the protected world of art school-where everyone looked the same, acted the same, and spoke the same language-and entered the world of business, I had to spend far more time trying to explain to my clients what design was than actually doing it.
I realized that I was approaching the world from a set of operating principles that was different from theirs. The resulting confusion was getting in the way of my creativity and productivity.
I also noticed that the people who inspired me were not necessarily members of the design profession: engineers such as Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Thomas Edison, and Ferdinand Porsche, all of whom seemed to have a human-centered rather than technology-centered worldview; behavioral scientists such as Don Norman, who asked why products are so needlessly confusing; artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Antony Gormley, who seemed to engage their viewers in an experience that made them part of the artwork; business leaders such as Steve Jobs and Akio Morita, who were creating unique and meaningful products.
I realized that behind the soaring rhetoric of "genius" and "visionary" was a basic commitment to the principles of design thinking. A few years ago, during one of the periodic booms and busts that are part of business as usual in Silicon Valley, my colleagues and I were struggling to figure how to keep my company, IDEO, meaningful and useful in the world. There was plenty of interest in our design services, but we also noticed that we were increasingly being asked to tackle problems that seemed very far away from the commonly held view of design.
A health care foundation was asking us to help restructure its organization; a century-old manufacturing company was asking us to help it better understand its clients; an elite university was asking us to think about alternative learning environments. We were being pulled out of our comfort zone, but this was exciting because it opened up new possibilities for us to have more impact in the world. We started to talk about this expanded field as "design with a small d" in an attempt to move beyond the sculptural objet displayed in lifestyle magazines or on pedestals in museums of modern art.
