Shape and innovate: How to master the sustainability two-step

Shape and innovate: How to master the sustainability two-step | Beautiful: beyond practical | Scoop.it
Nike and other leading companies are driving change by learning a new dance.

Companies had a responsibility to minimize their negative impact on the world. But it turns out that unsustainable development has a negative impact on business as well, with resource shortages affecting the long-term viability of supply chains. That's why leading companies now talk in terms of "sustainability."

Today, the prevailing attitude is this: Doing nothing presents real risks. Acting now opens up opportunity. Executives in leading companies are realizing that long-term value creation requires a dynamic, successful society. To create this, the global economy must operate within environmental limits while ensuring people have the capability to act by developing their skills and providing the support of institutions and other social foundations. But creating these conditions is too much for one company alone.

El proceso de diseñar. O de resolver problemas. Con empatía y creatividad. Ahora lo llaman Design Thinking

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, June 9, 2014 2:18 AM

While learning to be a good designer takes years, non-designers can learn to think like a designer and apply these skills to leadership and innovation. Hands-on innovation challenges will guide you through a design thinking process from start to finish.
