Take a seat in the virtual lecture hall of Stanford professor Banny Banerjee. A co-creator of design thinking, Banerjee explains that although its human-centered approach is ideal for some problems, other issues are vast, intertwined, urgent and complex: Think poverty or food and energy shortages. Such systemic problems call for a new innovation method and mind-set. getAbstract believes leaders, designers, policy makers and anyone pitted against a massive problem will benefit from this cerebral plunge into “systems leadership.”
In this summary, you will learn
- Why design thinking can’t solve every problem;
- How to tackle challenges that are “scaled, complex, urgent, integrated, nonlinear, critical” and “insidious”;
- What qualities define transformative leaders.
