A fascinating moment

Reading Restarting Britain 2: Design and Public Services

"At their best design methods and design thinking catalyse people to see issues and possibilities in a fresh way. They spark creativity and help us to sport the possible connections between things, which so often become obscured by the silos of daily life which dominate government and businesses alike. But we're at a fascinating moment when design needs to do better at learning as well as teaching, if its full potential is to be realised. If it does, it could become one of the defining fields of the next few decades. If it doesn't it risks being seen as a fad that failed" Geoff Mulgan
