Studying The Human Side Of Change And Innovation

Leader, manager, and designer Dave Gray focuses on the human side of change and innovation. He researches and writes about such questions as: How can you get people to adopt new ideas? How can you win their hearts and minds? How can you get people, including yourself, to change deeply embedded habits and behaviors? How can you transform a business strategy from a good idea to a living fact in the real world?

Gray founded the strategic design consultancy XPLANE, and co-founded Boardthing, a collaboration platform for distributed teams. He has worked with many of the world’s largest companies, as well as mid-sized businesses, startups, executives and individuals. Gray's latest book is Liminal Thinking: Create The Change You Want By Changing The Way You Think. He is also author of two books on design, change, and innovation: Gamestorming: A Playbook For Innovators, Rule-Breakers, and Changemakers, and The Connected Company.
