The Four Keys to Successful Design is a motivational guide through the elements comprising the heart and soul of creative innovation. The four keys presented in this book--Inspiration, Innovation, Exploration, and Creation--explore human nature and explain why these elements are critical throughout our careers. Author Nathan Cool entertains as well as educates, with numerous references to innovations that made it, those that didn't, and why. He guides you on a journey to not only see what others have done, but to look inside yourself, unlock your potential for engineering excellence, and to constantly gain the momentum to continually improve. Cool illustrates how to avoid pitfalls, using examples of real world designs, practical tools for managing the four keys, and pragmatic yet motivational techniques. Truly an inspiration for those who have the yearning to design, The Four Keys to Successful Design breaks through the walls of procedural development and motivates you to fulfill your potential.
