about this book

The award-winning design firm that brought the world the Apple mouse, the Palm V, and other cutting-edge products reveals its secrets for fostering innovation-"out of the box" thinking across the world of business. Kelley outlines the steps IDEO and other successful companies use to achieve successful problem solving such as: closely observing behavior of the people who will be using a product or service-what Kelley calls the "anthropology of design;" brainstorming ideas; prototyping designs and ideas at every stage; using "cross-pollination" to find solutions to tricky problems in other, unrelated products or fields; and much more.
