How to be an influential design function in an organization

Shashank Deshpande

CDO, Globant

Design function is very lonely & many cases isolated component of an organization. The key decision-makers in an organization rarely understand how to collaborate and extract value from designers. There is a lack of recognition & appreciation in spite of the popular stories of the designers’ contribution to the success of the business. The perception gap on both sides needs to be bridged that could eventually lead to design-centered organizational culture. The talk will discuss a few strategies to create a long-lasting mindset & cultural change required for the design function to establish & flourish.
