Designing for Rapid Change and a Cloudy Future
"We exist in a world of perpetual, rapid-fire innovation, fueled mostly by the need for enterprises of all sorts to maintain competitive advantage. At times it seems as if change is destabilizing every aspect of our lives.
As designers, innovation shapes everything we do. It affects our clients’ needs as well as our processes and opportunities. And yet despite ever-increasing calls to develop novel solutions, the assumption that newer is always better can be dangerous. In fact, continual change has made it increasingly difficult to achieve genuinely good design. Time can prove a harsh judge of our efforts to leap ahead."
