In Predictable Magic, veteran industrial designer Ravi Sawhney and business strategist Deepa Prahalad introduce a breakthrough approach for systematically creating deep emotional connections between consumers and brands… seamlessly integrating corporate strategy with design… transcending the utilitarian (or even the “beautiful”) to build products that powerfully connect, touch, and move people... again and again! Next, in Do You Matter?, legendary industrial designer Robert Brunner (who laid the groundwork for Apple’s brilliant design language) and Stewart Emery help you use design to consistently create products, services, and experiences that matter to customers’ lives -- and thereby drive powerful, sustainable improvements in business performance. Through case studies from leaders like Nike, Apple, BMW and IKEA, they introduce design-driven techniques for managing your entire experience chain… defining effective design strategies and languages… managing design… using (and not abusing) research… extending design values into marketing and manufacturing… encouraging design innovations that open entirely new markets! Then, in Disrupt: Think the Unthinkable to Spark Transformation in Your Business, frog design’s Luke Williams shows how to start generating (and executing on) a steady stream of disruptive strategies and unexpected solutions. Williams combines the fluid creativity of "disruptive thinking" with the analytical rigor that’s indispensable to business success. The result: a simple yet complete five-stage process for imagining a powerful market disruption, and transforming it into a reality that catches your entire industry by surprise. Finally, in the highly-anticipated Second Edition of Creating Breakthrough Products: Revealing the Secrets that Drive Global Innovation, Jonathan Cagan and Craig Vogel offer an indispensable roadmap for uncovering new opportunities, identifying what customers really value today, and building products and services that transform markets.
