Visual Thinking & Service BluePrinting
Great design is characterized by Integral Thinking. The application of these principles to business practices is what we call Business Design. Whether the goal is to develop new products or services, create new ways of marketing to customers or reinvent an entire business model, ‘design thinking’ helps get bigger ideas, faster and more efficiently. We believe the mindset and methods behind great design are the same ingredients for successful Business Design. You can follow my Visual Inspirations on the Subject via Pinterest
