Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that design has been steadily moving up the corporate ranks and knocking on the boardroom door. Increasingly, it’s the not-so-secret sauce driving the creation of products and services that people love. The Chief Design Officer is on the rise. So ask yourself: is your organization truly design-centric, or are you just paying it lip service? Mark will demonstrate the growing importance of design on the boardroom agenda and reveal who’s in danger of becoming obsolete in the age of the CDO.
