"Innovation's not easy. Culture has to change, processes have to change, reward systems have to change."
– Nathan Shedroff

There is an art to analyzing, understanding, and interpreting human behavior. Shifting away from a culture of expertise to a culture of innovation allows for a continued process of evaluation, experimentation, exploration, and inquiry. By focusing on questions, context, and human behavior, a harmony is created between creative and analytical ways of thinking and making.
User-research is a core tenant of design thinking, and feedback cycles of prototyping, testing, learning, and incorporating insights are an integral part of the evolution of a product or service.
