Michael Shamiyeh teaches at Harvard. His book What People Want: 
Populism in Architecture and Design (2005) was an instant bestseller. 
Since then he is working on a radical scheme to introduce his design of 
thinking within McKinsey, the world's largest consultancy firm, to 
manufacture creative solutions when the solution is the problem.
