How getting ready can get in the way of doing.
"Design sells" has become an accepted fact, but the responsibility of proving its effectiveness has been put on the designer. Traditionally a matter of client trust and the persuasion of a compelling creative rationale, today's client companies are now demanding tangible, bottom line results for their considerable investment. The design community and its associations have made very little effort to educate business about the process and value of design, no wonder most "civilians" still don't really understand what design is or what it does.
