In an increasingly complex global environment, traditional approaches to strategic thinking and problem solving are proving to be inadequate. Design thinking (a process used by designers) and action research/action learning (processes used by managers for organizational change and development) provide some alternative approaches to overcome the inadequacies of traditional approaches to facilitating sustainable innovation.
