Design thinking at IBM: Not easy when designers think you are are dinosaur
Nice little article on IBM trying to inject design thinking from the NYTimes.
Key highlights for me: They started in 2012, are on their way to hire about 1,500 design people and have trained ~8,000 IBMers (out of a total of ~300k). The quote that stood out for me:
These [designers] are millennials in Silicon Valley — they think Google is an old company. To them, IBM was a historical relic.
Good reminder on how the real battle is going to be for talent.
