  3. Tim Brown: Change By Design

    Tim Brown

    CEO, IDEO; Author, Change By Design

    One myth of innovation is that brilliant solutions leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. In reality, we don’t simply realize solutions; we design them. Design thinking is now being applied to address a wide range of concerns, from delivering clean drinking water to improving airport security and microfinancing.
