Design & Design Thinking is a complex phenomenon that most organizations are not familiar, encouraging nor amenable to efficiency and creative accounting.
If the best of organizational changes are an Evolution then Design is a transformative Mutation. Not born of the ordinary. Not nurtured by traditions. At its crudest, Design is a loud “f*ck you!” directed at status quo. One must fundamentally be dissatisfied with the way things are in order to rip it apart and design something creative, innovative and radical. Design does not recognize any holy cows.
Design Thinking supersedes and surpasses system thinking and holistic thinking.
