The reader is challenged to consider the author's bold assertion: There can be no real innovation without design. Both are easy reads. Covered in THE DESIGNFUL COMPANY: - the top 10 "wicked problems" that only design can solve - a new, broader definition of design - why designing trumps deciding in an era of change - how to harness the "organic drivetrain" of value creation - how aesthetics add nuance to managing - 16 levers to transform your company - why you should bring design management inside - how to assemble an innovation metateam - how to recognize and reward talent From the back cover: The complex business problems we face today can't be solved with the same thinking that created them.

Instead, we need to start from a place outside traditional management. Forget total quality. Forget top-down strategy. In an era of fast-moving markets and leap-frogging innovations, we can no longer "decide" the way forward.

Today we have to "design" the way forward--or risk ending up in the fossil layers of history. Get A Copy. Paperback , pages. More Details Original Title. Other Editions 3. Friend Reviews.

When I saw the AIGA imprint on this book, I figured it might mean that the ideas inside wouldn't be progressive enough for me. And sure enough, I did feel that way for the most part. That's not to say it's a bad book, or that it wouldn't be completely game-changing for many readers.

And not to be self-aggrandizing either, but this was a case of preaching to the converted for me and not going nearly far enough. The premise here is that corporations must embrace design thinking or perish in our n When I saw the AIGA imprint on this book, I figured it might mean that the ideas inside wouldn't be progressive enough for me.

The premise here is that corporations must embrace design thinking or perish in our new economic and cultural conditions. I hate to say it but, no shit. The first half of the book interested me far more than the latter half. Here, Neumeier's style is rapid-fire and extremely engaging — you can feel the energy of a fast-talking, whiteboard-scribbling enthusiast, so excited to impart new ideas that he can barely contain himself.

The prose is slightly clever and extremely concise, and peppered with quotes from expert thinkers that do well in broadening and glossing the ideas presented. I have no doubt that he is a smart, insightful and engaging man.

I just want him to take it further! The second half — or should I say third third — of the book enumerates 16 "levers" to facilitate change in organizations towards cultures of innovation and design thinking. It's aimed squarely at large corporations, replete with their resources, departments, old-school management styles to quash and traditional cultures to change. For a leader working in an environment like that, brilliant! They should read this book, they should underline tips on every page, internalize, embrace, implement.

Go go go! But again, for me, preaching to the converted. In the few places where Neumeier gets into "this is how we do it at my firm" I was extremely interested and anxious for more — but that may be the nature of my work and my quasi-voyeuristic curiosity about how other people do the same things I do — and what I can learn from them.

He talks up collaboration as the proper means to "designful" ends — but then he limits it a bit with "take this in-house", "outsource that". Stuck in the structures of traditional companies and business models. What if you're a company of one? What if you're a truly agile organization? What if your a consortium, a collaborative consumption company, involved in the connected world — actually in touch with your customers?

He doesn't really address newer ways of thinking about business — only how to modify the old ones. Valid yes. The whole story? Not at all. In a way, I think of this as a treatise along the lines of Daniel Pink's "A Whole New Mind" — get in with right-brain thinking, or get lost.

It's a polemic about the power of creativity, in a way — an augury for those business leaders who've somehow, blinkered, not not noticed, that the creative economy is coming. The most important claim in this book for ma was a clear confidence that design management is never to be outsourced. But at the same time many of the design skills should always be outsourced. For me, very useful point.

The second important thing for me was that companies that are growing or if they want to grow, would need a Chief Design Officer or Chief Brand Off Mr. I really couldn't agree more. Then there are some other things I'm glad I found out. Now they have a company-trained designers that are helping to launch products per year. In Slovenia some academics have proposed that a former textile giant Mura should have around designer but I doubt that the managers were listening.

In four stages it goes from seed money to develop concept to small bet to develop strategy to medium bet to model and test, and to large bet to launch in market. How do you get a bunch of independent minded professionals to play nice together?

By establishing sensible rules of engagement. Easy to say, harder to put in real life in my opinion. If the want to be visionary leaders they need to become managers of stories. The scheme goes into six categories. Really fascinating. And then there is another fascinating scheme. About deep design. Thinking with logic and inspiration. Design thinking. Design thinkers tend to be: empathetic, intuitive, imaginative, idealistic. This is why future should be designed, not decided.

Because difference and design bring together the delight. Yes, I toast to that. Is there something funny about this book? If we want to describe the creative process this is something deeper as wedding is describing sex.

Was that understood? I guess not. Shelves: marketing , nonfiction , business. For his wedding, I preordered him the latest Neumeier tome and he was nice enough to lend it to me before he had the chance to read it.

The Plot: All of Neumeier's books are written in a whiteboard style i. The focus of this particular book is how virtually everything in business can be designed, and designed more effectively. The main thesis is that design drives innovation which powers brands which then creates loyalty and raises profits.

To illustrate how companies can use design, Neumeier develops and explains 16 levers for change that can help businesses solve 'wicked problems' the business-world equivalent of famine or AIDS and become more competitive, not just for dollars, but for the right staff to power innovation.
