Noah helps organizations drive change in design practice.

He works on both innovation of solution and innovation of meaning, walking on the fine line between design and business, in the context of organizational transformation.

In the innovation of solution, creative problem solving often includes a chain of clarification and a wall of clarity.


Techniques & Methods

Companies don’t need full-time specialists most of the time… Instead, companies need overlap. They need a group of people who have a range of skills. People who can do user research and strategy definition, swing into interaction design and content strategy, maybe kick up a prototype or two along the way (in one form or another), run usability tests at a couple of stages, and maybe even help out with visual design.

The thinking tools available to designers depend heavily upon the knowledge structure of the disciplines that play a role in the design project.
