WHAT’S NEW ABOUT DESIGN THINKING?
What exactly is Design Thinking? And how is it different from other creative processes? This e-book answers those questions, exploring the history of Design Thinking, its unique attributes and its value to market researchers.

One of the persistent myths about creativity is that it's about “thinking outside the box.” But creative professionals will tell you it's actually about thinking inside a box. A box of your own making, a box in which you set the dimensions, but a box nonetheless. Conceiving of creativity in this way can be of great help to market researchers, not only in providing coherence and focus to their reporting, but also in developing new processes, procedures and models.
