    Seemed promising, but the writing is terrible. The flow of the text is often awkward, and the voice does not sound natural. Reading multiple passages out loud confirmed the hypothesis that a much stronger edit would have helped. Have you ever heard anyone say "cotton to" when what they were trying to say was "understand"? It's crazy. The "playbook" aspect is light on examples from real life companies, and the techniques often lack enough depth for any practical application.

It's crazy. The "playbook" aspect is light on examples from real life companies, and the techniques often lack enough depth for any practical application. I've read a lot of business books on Lean and agile in the last few years. I usually take a lot of notes, and get a few good ideas from each book. I hit 120+ pages in this book and realized I hadn't taken any notes at all. I'm going to look elsewhere for another resource on Design Thinking.

    This book is a hot mess that superficially covers 1,000 topics without any obvious coherent structure or depth. On top of that it's hard to read and written in an incomprehensible manner so that I couldn't even bring myself to read it from start to finish once. To someone who wants to learn about design thinking I cannot recommend this in any way.

On top of that it's hard to read and written in an incomprehensible manner so that I couldn't even bring myself to read it from start to finish once. To someone who wants to learn about design thinking I cannot recommend this in any way. For a book that claims to be "the first design thinking book that lives the mindset from the first to the last page" I wonder if the authors actually ever thought about the readers of their own book. After all, design thinking is all about the user... So why on earth would the authors choose this impractical and huge page format? Where are you supposed read this book comfortably? The fact that it is also quite heavy and there is only the tiniest amount of space for your thumbs to hold the book (to hold it thightly, you will have to cover parts of the text) makes me question if the authors actually apply their own principles. Furthermore, the horrid grid system to which the paragraphs are aligned just makes the book that much harder to read. I know it seems like nitpicking but the whole book seems like a loveless, confusing and random collection of well-known design thinking principles. If you want to learn about a mindful digital transformation of teams, products services, businesses and ecosystems, please go and look elsewhere.

    This book is packed full of useful tools, frameworks and approaches for implementing design thinking. It's a bit like buying a master mechanics tool set. the downside is that it's extremely dense. It's not something you can easily sit down, progress through, and implement. However, it's a great reference manual for the future as you bump into issues working with design thinking.

    I have no idea what the book is about - because the first page of the translation is so bad I had to reject the whole book. Bản dịch tiếng Việt là một mớ hỗn độn, chất lượng tồi tệ, phản ánh tác phong làm việc cực kì cẩu thả. Cho cái người tự xưng là dịch giả vào danh sách đen.

    Remarkably practical and useful book that posits the combination of design thinking, systems thinking, and combining them in a hybrid manner (with an appropriately diverse team) to create innovative solutions.

    One of the good books which combines design thinking with systems thinking and giving insights how strategic foresight helps us to create greater visions. The book focuses on the design for future where it talks about the design criteria in digitization, the design of ecosystems and the options of how to combine data analytics and design thinking.

    Very interesting book. It’s divided in 3 parts which cover what design thinking is, how to implement it in a team and how to change a company mindset to make better use of this tool. The book strikes a nice balance between theory and practical expert tips/recommended tools. It will make you think a lot about how you work and what the future looks like for companies that adapt. The negatives (there always are some): it is sometimes naive in how optimistic it is, and the authors’ keep using blockcha Very interesting book.

    Very comprehensive read about the various methods & tools of Design Thinking. I also love the approach of starting the book by defining various personas with their unique needs and aspirations leading to the methods & tools which are suitable for them i.e. attempting to explain the book similar to a project in a design/innovation portfolio - really unique and interesting approach. This makes it a must-read for those who are passionate about Design Thinking & Innovation.

    This is a great book for the visual learner as it is mostly visual representations of design thinking concepts. While I found it useful for creating visuals related to concepts I was working through for school, I found it a bit high level overview rather than much on the theory and the why - definitely more focused on the how. A good resource to be sure but I felt I like I needed something more...

    There are some great takeaways but overall just too much information crammed in a way that is not easy to follow- personas aren’t strong enough to remember, chapter sections don’t emphasise the takeaways clearly, etc. There are better books for design thinking methodology but the first section is a good visual walk though for complete beginners.

    An overview of multiple topics - from design thinking, to systems thinking, lean start-up, AI, digital transformation, visual facilitation and more. Personally did not find anything new, but you can find info for all the buzzwords in one single place.

    mostly I looked at the pictures. There is tons of information and lots of practical advice. It is set up to help you work through a problem. Has tons of examples. The book is more than I can tackle right now.

    Very comprehensive, and what I love more is how the authors marry the various business protocols with DT, and into something that makes a little more sense. Love the inclusion of digitization contexts too, which makes the materials even more relevant and current.

    There are useful things here, but instead of reading through, I am going to jump around as needed if I want another take on an aspect of DT

    Great introduction to Design Thinking Great content, didn’t like the way it was told, not much of a fan of stories of fake people, but messages were good

    It is a good book. Partly it is a great one. Some diagrams and perspective shifts show that the authors have profound knowledge about the industry and product/service design.
