Why Design Thinking Works Occasionally, a new way of organizing work leads to extraordinary improvements. Total quality management did that in manufacturing in the 1980s by combining a set of tools—kanban cards, quality circles, and so on—with the insight that people on the shop floor could do much higher level work than they usually were asked to. That blend of tools and insight, applied to a work process, can be thought of as a social technology. In a recent seven-year study in which I looked in depth at 50 projects from a range of sectors, including business, health care, and social services, I have seen that another social technology, design thinking, has the potential to do for innovation exactly what TQM did for manufacturing: unleash people’s full creative energies, win their commitment, and radically improve processes. The Challenges of Innovation To be successful, an innovation process must deliver three things: superior solutions, lower risks and costs of change, and employee buy-in.

Evolving the Google Identity Google is not a conventional company. Our mission—to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful—continues to evolve.

With those considerations in mind, we are excited to share a new brand identity that aims to make Google more accessible and useful to our users—wherever they may encounter it. Since its inception, the homepage has been strikingly simple: The quirky, multicolored logo sits above a single, approachable input field on a clean white canvas.

What Is Design Thinking? Two years ago, Jon Kolko, chief operating officer at Austin-based design consultancy Modernist Studio, arrived at the home of a 20-year-old photography major at the University of North Texas who was considering dropping out.

Kolko, who was previously the vice president of product design at Blackboard, was there with his colleague, chief design officer Chad Fisher. They were interviewing Kendra as part of the discovery phase of the design thinking research their firm was doing for Texas OnCourse, a state-funded college and career planning resource.

Faucet that allows only 1 liter of water - Seoul Colors 1ℓimit faucet doesn’t necessarily changes how we physically interact with faucets but will definitely impact our behavior and environmental awareness when using water. Designers Yonggu Do, Dohyung Kim & Sewon Oh realized that we use approximately 6 liters of water per second and came up with a much more environmentally friendly faucet design that allows the user to use only 1 liter of water before it is refilled. Although the water is refilled whenever the user closes the faucet, it still effectively transforms our behavior when spending water and creates environmental awareness by forcing this “1 limit”. via Yanko
