In 2006, a group of professionals united by their experiences and interest in “merging business practices with design-centric problem solving” got together in California to discuss the Overlap. Through presentations, discussions, and social gatherings we explored what blossomed at the intersections of design and business.
Michael Dila, who organized the subsequent 2007 Overlap in Toronto, Canada recently published videos from the event featuring speakers like Roger Martin, Jeanne Liedtka, Dave Gray, and more. If you’re interested in how design is relevant for business, take a look.
