The myth of innovation is that brilliant ideas leap fully formed from the minds of geniuses. The reality is that most innovations come from a process of rigorous examination through which great ideas are identified and developed before being realized as new offerings and capabilities. This is not a book by designers for designers; this is a book for creative leaders seeking to infuse design thinking into every level of an organization's products or service to drive new alternatives for business and society.

The first couple chapters are quite informative and useful. It lays out design thinking in a clear way and goes through what it involves, how to use it properly and effectively, etc. However, after that the rest of the book is just a long list of different projects that Ideo has done and changes it's undergone. I've walked away knowing a whole lot about Ideo and decent amount about design thinking. Overall, a good book though it could have knocked off an hour or so of the case studies.
