Design & Innovation Roundtable

A community for leaders of design-led innovation

dots pattern

The Design & Innovation Roundtable is a free, invite-only group of leaders who share a passion for design-led innovation, and carry the experiences, victories, and struggles earned from the unique challenges of bringing change to established orgs.

You’re a leader in an established organization. You’re leading a team focused on innovation, design, or digital, or maybe all three. You’ve spent years as a practitioner, a change agent, and a mentor. You’re leading up and sideways, executing critical work while teaching, evangelizing, and sometimes defending a new way of working.

It’s easy to find advice and stories from innovators in start-ups and new high-growth companies, who just accept design-led innovation, customer-centricity, and digital-first as normal. But it’s hard to find others who understand the particular challenges of teaching an established organization a new way of thinking.

You don’t have to do it alone.

Founded in 2019, the Design & Innovation Roundtable is composed of Director and VP level leaders at diverse organizations.
