To celebrate 1 million listens to the Design Better Podcast, we’re rewinding to our episode with David Kelley, Founder of IDEO and the Stanford d.school, in honor of David just receiving the Edison Award for Innovation. And we’re sending a special thanks to YOU for listening and helping us reach this 1 million milestone. We’re tremendously grateful to you, your friends, and colleagues for tuning in and joining the journey with us.
David Kelley doesn’t like to claim to have come up with the term design thinking, even though most people would say he did. But regardless of who coined it, as founder of IDEO and the Stanford d.school he has been one of the most influential proponents of design thinking, and human-centered design in general.
When it comes to bringing together engineering, product, and design teams early in the design process, and aligning those teams towards a common goal, design thinking has few equals, and should be part of the toolkit for every product driven company.
In this episode, Eli and Aarron speak with David about what it takes to bring designers and engineers together, how our workspace influences our work, and how we can encourage creative confidence in our companies.
Enjoy the chat and cheers to 1 million listens to the Design Better Podcast. Thank you so much for listening.
