there a delineation between designers and managers and can there be a back and
forth training? Yes and no.
Design Leaders we see the clear identification and breakdown of the way
that design and design managers are utilized. Can there be a difference in the
way that these groups operate and the way they are able to encourage each other
as a mechanism for further creative output? Yes. The key is content and
creation. As evidence clearly uncovers, it is design leaders, who relentlessly focus
on product and operate as a profoundly design-centric function involving a
‘hands-on’ approach. These individuals provide the vision that is catalyzed by
actively leading designers and broader team members to produce differentiation and
rapid change in response to demanding environmental factors [ibid].
