Keywords: The Design Way


The premise of The Design Way is that in today’s rapidly changing world, current intellectual traditions are becoming increasingly inadequate – if still important – approaches to managing human affairs.  For example, hard and soft sciences can help us understand how the world works, but generally offer little guidance on intentionally changing it.  To address this shortcoming, the authors advance design as a distinct tradition that finds its key feature in making a novel idea concrete.
