Resource list

A list of resources I frequent for strategy, collaboration, research and design practice. Updated every now and again.

Strategy

Collaboration

Reflecting on work

  • https://www.manager-tools.com An incredibly rich source of career and management advice vitamins. The podcast series on how to write your resume is both instructive and hilarious.
  • https://www.bobsutton.net/articles Bob Sutton is the Professor of Management Science at the Stanford Engineering School and author of The No Asshole Rule and Good Boss Bad Boss. His writing on organisations is evidence-based so the next time some fad comes your way, check-in with Bob’s articles and blog.

Research

Design practice

Remote research

Technology opinion

Human directory

  • https://alltop.com/ Directories crafted and curated by actual humans used to be a big thing, and was a reason why Yahoo! was a thing before Google. While they may seem anachronistic compared to search they can uncover gold hard to find in your personalised search echo chamber.

For design and product inspiration and curiosities

Fantastic! What a great list of resources. As a Design Researcher who started my career as a Qualitative Market Researcher (“Qualie”), I particularly like the AQR glossary. Thanks for sharing. It shows that the discipline and industry of Design has cherry picked the most relevant and outcome-focussed methodologies. Which, by the way, is a perfectly pragmatic way of approaching research to inform delivery/action.
