Bruce Nussbaum on Design Thinking & the d.school

BusinessWeek’s Bruce Nussbaum has written some very thought-provoking posts recently about the state of design, design thinking, and education.

In his first post, Bob Kerrey Gets Innovation Right at The New School and Parsons, he says that "Design thinking is seen as the integrative solvent that brings together the programs through a powerful methodology that solves a myriad of problems. It’s the same perspective as Stanford has in its new d. school — the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design."

And then there’s his second post, Are Designers The Enemy of Design?  It’s definitely worth a read, and is very though provoking.  In it he makes a distinction between the world of design and the world of design thinking.  We’d love to hear what you think of it, either in the comments section on this blog or at Bruce’s own blog.
