I maintain a semi-regular blog with postings on organization design, design leadership, and other relevant matters. 

Org Design for Design Orgs

In 2015, Kristin Skinner (with whom I worked at Adaptive Path, and who had stayed on and joined Capital One) and I realized that there was hunger for guidance on how to build in-house design teams, and almost no resources for design leaders to support them in this effort. 

So, we banded together and wrote Org Design for Design Orgs, which came out in 2016, and is still the only book focused on this subject. 

We built a website for the book, that includes a blog with new thinking since the book came out. I stopped writing there in 2019 in favor of this site,


Readers have a habit of reading the book in detail.
