Daniel Pink at Poptech on the Coming Ascendency of Right-Brain Thinking
Submitted on Mon, 01/07/2008 - 14:11 — Greg Van Alstyne
In this entertaining video/audio podcast, business author Daniel Pink argues that new economic forces are devaluing late 20th century, linear, rules-based business thinking in favour of the "artistic, empathic and inventive" -- toward what we might call, in a word, "design thinking." Themes he explores are highly similar to those stressed by former Beal Institute director, Alexander Manu. For example, Pink outlines the three critical forces driving the shift: affluence, Asia, and automation. http://www.poptech.org/popcasts/popcasts.aspx?lang=&viewcastid=158
