“A startup founder who ‘gets’ user experience and design will likely create a more successful product than one who does not.

It’s because this type of design thinking and understanding of the customer seeps into every other aspect of the product.” – Jeff Gothelf

“Design thinkers look past a project to the next project, to the next step in the strategy.

No problem is solved in isolation—either from the past, or from the future.” - Mark Dziersk

Design thinking is a catalyst for innovation productivity

“Organizations need to take design thinking seriously. We need to spend more time making people conscious of design thinking — not because design is wondrous or magical, but simply because by focusing on it, we’ll make it better. And that’s an imperative for any business, because design thinking is indisputably a catalyst for innovation productivity.” - Tim Brown
