Selected by popular vote, the Chicago UX Book Club’s January book will be Change by Design: How Design Thinking Transforms Organizations and Inspires Innovation by Tim Brown.
“The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities.
This book introduces the idea of design thinking‚ the collaborative process by which the designer′s sensibilities and methods are employed to match people′s needs not only with what is technically feasible and a viable business strategy. In short‚ design thinking converts need into demand. It′s a human−centered approach to problem solving that helps people and organizations become more innovative and more creative.”
Please remember that you can come to the meeting even if you haven’t read the book.
