Wicked Problems: Problems Worth Solving


Serendipitously, given my previous post, I’ve just seen that Jon Kolko has put out a new book called, Wicked Problems: Problems Worth Solving that focuses on design’s role in social entrepreneurship.

This book was started with the intent of changing design and social entrepreneurship education. As these disciplines converge, it becomes evident that existing pedagogy doesn’t support either students or practitioners attempting to design for impact. This text is a reaction to that convergence, and will ideally be used by various students, educators, and practitioners.

You can order a physical copy here, buy a DRM-free eBook version for as much or as little as you like and read the entire book online for free. Nice. The book as a service. I hope we see more of that.
