Design Thinking Can Yield Results IF Expections are Managed

It may not be a silver bullet, but design thinking can yield results if companies manage their expectations and commit themselves to implementing good ideas.

These excerpts from really hit home when it comes to artwork - many times our  clients know they need artwork but fail to strategize on how to actually accomplish this task

At Art Rent and Lease, we can only help the client with budget, selection, installation, etc. - we can't force them to make a choice, but they can let our experts choose for them.  We can't force them to get their team to collaborate, but they can let our experts collaborate.  Why leave old, outdated artwork on the walls when you can replace quickly, easily and inexpensively.....just get it done by letting us help YOU.
Some quotes from the article:
  • Ideas are a dime a dozen; it’s implementation that decides triumph or failure.
  • To work, design thinking must meet with realistic expectations.

These realistic expectations are what make design thinking work. Perhaps companies would have better luck if they spent more time formulating the right expectations at the outset. For our part, creative consultancies have an obligation to explain more clearly what we can't do -- that a great strategy doesn't solve a problem by itself. It can be daunting, even painful, to tell our clients this truth, but doing anything less is asking to fail.
