By the age of 12 Elon Musk had sold his first commercial software, a space game called Blaster. Sixteen years later he sold his first company, Zip2, to Compaq’s Alta Vista division for $341 million in cash and stock. His next act was as co-founder of PayPal, which was acquired by eBay for $1.5 billion in stock in 2002.
Musk then turned his energy toward two notable new ventures: SpaceX, developer and manufacturer of space launch vehicles, and Tesla Motors, developer of high-end electric automobiles - both of which were started in a downturn. What makes this visionary entrepreneur tick?
Musk speaks with Michael Malone about innovation for the future’s sake, business strategies to get there, how to make order out of chaos along the way, and more.
The Design of Business shows how leading companies use design thinking to push knowledge through stages that produce breakthrough innovations and competitive advantages. Roger Martin illustrates how to combine proof-based analytical thinking with possibility-based "abductive thinking;" how to change structures and processes to move knowledge from one stage to the next; and how to develop the key tools of design thinkers: observation, imagination, and configuration.
Through these stories, The Design of Business reveals the true foundation of successful, profitable innovation, connecting the worlds of business and design.
