In this book chapter, author Fred Brooks examines the changes that are shaping design and designers as well as technological advances that offer benefits and challenges (telecollaboration tools, "virtual" teams and design studios).
Effective design is at the heart of everything from software development to engineering to architecture.
But what do we really know about the design process? What leads to effective, elegant designs? The Design of Design: Essays from a Computer Scientist answers these questions.
Author Fred Brooks pinpoints the constants inherent to all design projects and uncovers processes and patterns most likely to lead to excellence. Drawing on the observations and intuitions of dozens of exceptional designers, as well as his direct experiences in several design domains, Brooks argues convincingly that bold design decisions lead to better outcomes.
