Applying a Growth Mindset to Innovation
I had heard about design thinking from accelerator, Matter.vc, which teaches media entrepreneurs this type of thinking. The idea is to not get too attached to “your baby” or startup. The idea is to iterate, make small bets, fail, learn and above all empathize with the people who will be using or buying what you’re creating.
Darden Professor Jeanne Liedtka who teaches a course called, “Design Thinking and Innovation” said:
.. we always want to keep plenty of options and experiment and be open to disconfirming data that tells us we’re headed down the wrong path.
