Nontraditional reading. Design thinking
Filed under: Position Searching, Mentoring
Posted by: site admin @ 9:52 am

One of the approaches companies are taking
to innovate is design thinking, Sara Beckman
writes in the NYTimes.  Design thinking
uses a distinctly different approach from using
Six  Sigma tools (that aim for process
improvement of existing systems) to rethink
how businesses are run, products are sold
and customers make choices.

It is interesting to explore the origins and
applications and intersections of these sorts
of ideas.

Prigogine described the bifurcation of
events based on timing alone

D Pollard’s approaches to system problems
and coming up with environmental design
solutions

strategy to learning and applying new
things.
