Good design might boost sales, but Business Design builds culture, and that is what Business Beyond Design is about: creating, preserving, and innovating businesses through design. Historically a business is IMPLEMENTED not really DESIGNED. The main difference from something that is implemented vs. something that is designed is the outcome. When something is implemented the outcome is known. When something is designed the outcome is unknown, and the design process leads you to the solution. In the modern world, most of the outcomes are unknown, so the logical way (would dare to say the only way) is to design our way towards that unknown. “Business Is implemented; Design is Discovered”This book records the journey of how the author researched and developed a new Business Design framework. Covering topics like— Distinguish between image and identity, The Beauty of Sustainable Failure, The Dark Side of Design, this book will act as an invaluable resource for designers, creatives and entrepreneurs alike. With practical tools and a hands-on approach, the author offers a fresh new look at how to Think Strategically, Foster Creativity and Transform Businesses.
