Results May Vary Podcast Podcast: Design Thinking for Living
About This Show
Tracy DeLuca and Chris Waugh have worked in the field of design thinking and innovation for over 17 years between them. They’ve helped sustain a Food Revolution for Jamie Oliver, and redesigned the way L.A. County votes. They’ve even engaged the world’s most creative minds in science by turning their genes into music at TED. Throughout their careers, they always wondered what would happen if they took the same creative problem-solving process they used to help well-known organizations solve their toughest challenges and applied it to people’s lives. Results May Vary is a thoughtful experiment to see just what happens when you set out to intentionally design your life.
