Check out this visualization by David Armano of the difference between B-school thinking and D-school thinking at Logic+Emotion. Scroll down a ways (but enjoy his first item as well). The image of two people--"D" and "B"--is pegged off the new D-school survey we just did--the first that focusses on schools and joint programs that teach design thinking, not design styling.
The more I work in the innovation space, the more I see the need for managers who know how to think differently. Increasingly, these folks get their education in the D-school space and in the joint programs that involve business school, engineering and design students who work in partnership to create things. Those "things" could be a new camera, a new financial service or a new business model. It's all in the way you create opportunity and satisfy needs.
