Great technology is a key source of innovation—but it’s not enough. From Fortune 500  firms to disruptive startups, the world’s most successful firm are demonstrating that genuinely successful innovation requires matching great technology with great design. Over the past decade, design, long dismissed as mere aesthetics, has emerged a critical component of corporate strategy. But getting design right isn’teasy. Often it requires founders and chief executives to embrace a different approach to leadership, and make far-reaching changes in company structure and culture. Two innovator founders discuss the role design plays in their business strategies, and a Shanghai-based senior partner from one of the world’s most respected design firms explains “design thinking with Chinese characteristics.”
