Using her experience on Wall Street, Whitney Johnson co-founded an investment firm based on principles of disruptive innovation. She soon came to realise that companies don’t disrupt, people do. In her book, Johnson says: ‘the fundamental unit of disruption is the individual. If you want your organisation to stay relevant, allow, encourage and even require your people to disrupt themselves.’ Every person in an organisation is on a learning curve and an organisation is a collection of everybody’s learning curves. Therefore, Johnson argues that an A-team requires optimising the collection of learning curves with 70% of people in the middle of the curve, and 15% at the high and low ends. Johnson’s fresh approach allows managers to see disruption in a tactical way in their own lives.

Design thinking, originally, was about the strategies designers used during the process of designing. However, it has come a long way since then. In business, design thinking is about approaching things differently with a strong user orientation and fast interactions with teams to find creative solutions to problems.

The authors have split the book into three main parts titled: Understand design thinking, transform organisations, and design the future.

This book is an actionable guide to the future of business, providing readers with all they need to create a digital transformation.
