In recent years as the global economy recovers from the Great Recession, more and more companies seek to have the uniqueness of product development and subsequent growth that Apple, HP, Google and others embody. The legendary successes of these Design Driven companies demonstrate that their products can replace the outdated products, expand existing markets, and create new opportunities for growth. This has caused many disruptions in companies which are often thwarted in their pursuit of success in the global market. The golden egg of innovation is a prize most valued by the corporate community.
Numerous studies have been conducted on changing corporate culture over the last two decades. However, even as the need for change is recognized, the question arises how strategic decisions are made in order to have transformative alterations in corporate management to promote new innovative products and resources. It is anticipated all levels of these thriving corporations aim to immerse their employees in Design Thinking principles and implementation, for enduring positive change. The quantitative survey research method to be conducted in this project will critically examine the facets of the change process associated with top corporate executives’ implementation of Design Thinking in their companies for new innovations and growth.
