I just talked with Claudia Kotchka at a book party in Chicago for Roger Martin and his great book on integrative thinking, The Opposable Mind.
Claudia says she is leaving P&G because she’s been at her job—of inculcating design thinking into the corporate culture—for seven years and she wants to do other things. Seven years is longer than she’s held any other job.
What other things? Claudia is not sure. She’s got an open mind.
So one of the most important design managers on the planet is now available for work. Got anything challenging for her?
