What Does a Chief Design Officer Do?
  • Nancye Green - Chief Design Officer, The Medicines Company

It depends. A designer’s lot in life is to have the ability to see the larger picture, the patterns and the possibilities in many situations, but to be misunderstood as a stylist. Then again, there are many kinds of designers. Those who understand the power of design to transform processes and make the world a better place for people. Those who bring beauty and delight to the everyday. A Chief Design Officer at her best, works as part of a leadership team to set goals, moves seamlessly between understanding the big picture and facilitating positive systemic change and sets and socializes the standards that define an organization and its products.
