1DD: how to positively impact with design
KAKRIDAS: “A design is only as good as it sells. Sell your vision so the whole org takes the journey with you.”
"Without great execution in all facets of product development, technology, marketing, and sales, a great design can fail. Great design inspires the whole organization to collaborate and delight customers and users. Sell your design internally, then externally."
