      Org design for design orgs: The workshop
      Peter  Merholz  (Self-employed), Kristin Skinner (Capital One)
      As the move to establish in-house design teams accelerates, there's very little common wisdom on what makes for a successful design organization. Design requires not just process and methods but savvy with organizational and operational matters. Peter Merholz and Kristin Skinner shine a light on the unsung activities of actually running a design team, exploring what works and what doesn't.
