RISE OF THE DEO: LEADERSHIP BY DESIGN
The majority of companies navigate a space where competitors appear overnight, customers demand innovations monthly, and business plans rarely last a full year. This environment of constant change will only accelerate in the future, and traditional business leaders are ill equipped to deal with it.
Let Design Lead. Leaders who understand the transformative power of design can command in times of change. We call these leaders DEOs—Design Executive Officers—and they are our new heroes. Come listen to the authors discuss this ground-breaking new book.

Rise of the DEO: Leadership by Design, identifies and explores the qualities of a new breed of leaders.
