Thinking about design thinking and artistry in business

I listened to this podcast on the plane back from Singapore overnight. From the BBC World Service page for this episode:

Peter Day has his ‘thinking hat’ on for this edition when he hears from two academics from the Rotman School of Management in Toronto, Canada.

Dr. Hilary Austen and Professor Roger Martin will be discussing design thinking and artistry in business.

Austen is the author of Artistry Unleashed: A Guide to Pursuing Great Performance in Work and Life. It looks at the ability to harness originality and mastery to enhance performance and help solve today’s most demanding problems. And Roger Martin has written extensively on design and believes we rely far too exclusively on analytical thinking.

It looks like there is some interesting follow up reading in the Rotman Magazine, for later.
