In this week’s article, I discuss effective ways to identify, support, and develop design managers into design leaders within an organization.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Just having a person appointed as design manager won’t get the organization great designs. Design leaders have to emerge for that to happen. Those leaders have to formulate a vision of what great design could be for that organization. And they have to gain followers among their peers throughout the organization, and support from the executive team.”
