Good for business and politics

The need to evaluate and kill bad ideas does not apply only to businesses:

An unwillingness to rigorously evaluate and kill weak ideas is but one indication that many New Zealand companies don’t fully understand the role of design in taking products and services to market.

The managing director of designindustry Ltd, Dorenda Britten, says  that in general Kiwi companies are good at the technical side of creating new products or services and we can ALWAYS be relied upon to make improvements on existing – cheaper, better etc…….

However we don’t tend to be good at standing back and evaluating the opportunity, costs and benefits such as, whose needs are we aiming to satisfy, when and how?

Such rigorous evaluation would be good in politics too.
