The Black Smoke Cloud

I am really mesmerized with the amount of complex innovation frameworks that have been popping up now and then in books, blogs and speeches.

Some of them have bullets that goes from 1 to 10, others 1 to 36, but the fact is that if we put all together there would be like 700 bullets on a PowerPoint presentation (not counting the duplicates).

In my point of view all of these bullet points are only part of a huge black smoke cloud, like those ninja hiding clouds, strategically blowed… Continue

This took me back to fond memories of working alongside my inspirational colleague MP Ranjan at the National institute of Design in India who has been pushing the barrow of design thinking and its extensive applications from way before it became a hot topic.
