This TED Talk comes from the 2008 Serious Play conference, where designer Tim Brown discussed the powerful relationship between creative thinking and play — with many examples you can try at home (and one that maybe you shouldn’t).
Tim Brown is CEO and president of IDEO. He frequently speaks about the value of design thinking and innovation to business people and designers around the world.
