Design Thinking: The Next Competitive Advantage

Two fundamental kinds of thinking co-exist and often collide in business
organizations: analytical thinking and design thinking. Both have their
places, but as organizations grow, analytical thinking ‹ which focuses on
exploitation and refinement of the current state of knowledge ‹ often crowds
out design thinking, which pushes knowledge forward and creates new
possibilities. To benefit from design thinking, a business needs to
understand how analytical thinking and design thinking differ, why and how
they come into conflict, and how to create an environment which encourages
design thinking to flourish.
