G-Voice Recommends: Change by Design:

How Design Thinking Transforms Organizations and Inspires Innovation

By Tim Brown

This is not a book just for designers, but rather, it is a how-to manual about thinking and living with a creative mindset. It introduces design thinking seamlessly into life, organizations, products and service, and serves as a breath of fresh air for social outlook and corporate strategies.  

Sit back as the CEO of IDEO, Tim Brown, takes readers on a journey to explore the world of design thinking. Design not only concerns visual appeal and polishing surroundings. It is more about how one observes, improves and reinvents the ordinary to achieve the extraordinary.

About the author: Tim Brown

Tim Brown is CEO and president of IDEO. Tim has led clients such as Apple, Microsoft, Pepsi, P&G, and exhibited work at the Axis Gallery in Tokyo, the Design Museum in London, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Tool Recommendation: IDEO Method Card

IDEO Methods Cards is a collection of 51 cards issued in 2003. Each is used to provide a different way of approaching a design project. The one thing that all of the cards have in common is that they are all human-centered methods, and designed to inform specific initiatives. Inspired by player cards, there is also four classifications to the methods cards: Ask, Watch, Learn and Try. The tools inspire new ways to evoke empathy and lead to solving problems from the user’s point of view.
