The design philosophies of Google and Apple represent different approaches to new product design. Google's model features bottom-up and data-driven decision-making processes, while Apple''s model is to design and build products top-down. Library instruction program design may learn from these differing but complementary approaches. Inspired by Google's and Apple's success, Library Instruction Design details how library instruction program design may learn from the philosophy of product design in the business world.
