MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Dec. 2, 2018 - PRLog -- Traditional design thinking approaches fail because they are not authentic and not holistic, and are mainly process-driven, focused on analytical thinking and how to follow design steps, cozy meetings, how to complete related tasks in certain order and how to use design tools. They do not inspire imagination, creativity and innovation effectively and sustainably. Innovative designs and successful implementation of these designs need an authentic, holistic, cyclic, iterative, and concentric approach. An approach in which personal innovation, personal disruption, and personal integrity are embedded. Design thinkers need to understand that all knowledge starts with self-knowledge, all learning starts with self-learning, and all innovation starts with personal innovation, and design thinking without personal integrity is not empathic.

It is about time to understand that without personal innovation and personal integrity, you cannot be a successful emphatic design thinker and corporate innovation and social innovation will be cosmetic. Effective design thinking should also include imagination, which is a combination of convergent and divergent thought, and creative intuitive thinking. Creative intuitive thinking is iterative and cyclic, while analytical thinking is linear.

In this book, I have introduced an authentic and holistic design thinking model for designing innovative products and services that reflect all aspects of life effectively. It entails an iterative, incremental, cyclic and concentric process of exploring, ideating, prototyping, and executing. This unique model starts with personal disruptive innovation, a new topic which I have published in my second new book in the design thinking series, with the title "Authentic Personal Branding for Design Thinkers; the Ultimate Breakthrough Formula for Personal Disruptive Innovation and Standing Out from the Crowd" (Rampersad, 2018). Personal disruptive innovation is an innovation that unleashes your creative potential, creates new personal opportunities, disrupts your existing target market and let you make a significant social impact. This is based on a framework and roadmap to build resilience, explore and (re)design your life, and develop your authentic personal design thinking brand and personal integrity. This entails spiritual & emotional intelligence, unlocking the creative potential within you and disrupting the normal course of your life as well. By applying this model, you will able to become visionary, imaginary, innovative, creative and empathic.

The included authentic personal design thinking branding blueprint is meant to strengthen your storytelling and to distinguish and separate yourself from the crowd. It shows what a design thinking professional should do to succeed in the design industry and in life......Read further
