Design Philosophy

From Design Thinking and Human-Centered Design to applying methods of Lean Product Design – Before these approaches – there needs to be an aspiration. In this era of speed and change, I say “Design with wisdom”.

For personal improvement, I keep a retrospective of collaborations with product management, engineering, marketing, and sales to distill them into lessons of success and failure.
