Wir befinden uns inmitten eines epochalen Wandels im Kräfteverhältnis unserer Gesellschaft, denn während die Ökonomien den Schwerpunkt von industriegefertigten Gütern auf Dienstleistungen und Erlebnisse verlagern, treten die Unternehmen die Kontrolle ab und nehmen ihre Kunden nicht mehr als „Endverbraucher“ wahr, sondern als Beteiligte an einem wechselseitigen Prozess. Im Laufe der jahrhundertlangen Geschichte der kreativen Problemlösung haben sich Designer das nötige Handwerkszeug zugelegt, das ihnen hilft, die „drei Räume der Innovation“, wie Tim Brown sie bezeichnet, zu durchlaufen: Inspiration, Ideenbildung und Umsetzung. Seiner Überzeugung nach müssen diese Fähigkeiten nun über die gesamten Unternehmen verstreut werden. Und das funktioniert mit einem der innovativsten Denkwerkzeuge zur Entwicklung von Ideen und zur Lösung von Problemen, dem Design Thinking. Im ersten Teil dieses Buches wird ein Rahmenwerk vorgestellt, das hilft, die Grundsätze und Methoden zu erkennen, die großartiges Design Thinking ermöglichen. Hier wird gezeigt, wie Design Thinking von einigen der innovativsten Unternehmen der Welt praktiziert wurde und zu bahnbrechenden Lösungen inspiriert hat. Der zweite Teil soll dazu anregen, nicht zu kleckern, sondern zu klotzen. Anhand drei großer Bereiche der menschlichen Aktivität – Unternehmen, Märkte und Gesellschaft – zeigt Tim Brown, wie aus dem Design Thinking heraus Wege entstehen können, um Ideen zu entwickeln, die unseren heutigen Herausforderungen gerecht werden. Dabei muss sich das Design Thinking in den Organisationen „aufwärts“ bewegen in die Nähe der Vorstandsetagen, wo strategische Entscheidungen getroffen werden. Denn Design ist zu wichtig geworden, als dass man es allein den Designern überlassen sollte. Tim Brown zählt zu den prominentesten Personen auf dem Gebiet von Design und Innovation weltweit. Er ist CEO und Präsident von IDEO, das Unternehmen, das die Apple-Maus und den Palm V entwickelt hat. Tim Brown spricht regelmäßig über den Wert des Designs und von Innovationen, unter anderem auf dem Weltwirtschaftsforum in Davos oder bei TED Talks. Er berät zahlreiche Fortune 100 Unternehmen. Seine Arbeiten wurden bereits in der Axis Gallery in Tokio, dem Design Museum in London und dem MOMA in New York ausgestellt.

Product and service designers place increasing emphasis on the colour, form and appearance of what their organization offers and the language with which they describe it.Gloria Moss' erudite, sophisticated and fascinating book, guides the reader to an understanding of the way gender influences our visual perception.In this wide-ranging book, the author explores design, visual aesthetics, language and communication, by drawing on an exhaustive range of primary sources of research from psychology, design, branding and communication.

* THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER * Young Mary Newton, born into a large Irish family in a small Watford semi, was always getting into trouble. When she wasn’t choking back fits of giggles at Holy Communion or eating Chappie dog food for a bet, she was accidentally setting fire to the local school. Mary was a trouble magnet. And, unlike her brothers, somehow she always got caught... Britain in the 1970s was a world where R White's lemonade was drunk in secret, curry came in a cardboard box marked Vesta and Beanz meant Heinz. In Mary’s family, money was scarce. Clothes were hand-me-downs, holidays a church day out to Hastings and meals were variations on the potato. But these were also good times which revolved around the force of nature that was Theresa, Mary’s mum. When tragedy unexpectedly blows this world apart, a new chapter in Mary’s life opens up. She takes to the camp and glamour of Harrods window dressing like a duck to water, and Mary, Queen of Shops is born...
