Designing Data. “Help I am drowning in data and I can’t get back up!”

According to John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, “who laid out his view of the future challenge facing leaders now that social media and technology have overturned the traditional company hierarchy. Fortunately, the solution to that challenge appears to be a applying good design to a lot of data.”

“He implied that this opens up opportunities for creative people to become leaders, but he directly stated that creative people could help make any leader in this new heterarchical structure more effective.”

Thanks to Social media and technology, it’s a level playing field in the business world today. Good news for Creatives. Good luck pitching a Canadian business owner on this one, still, as they don’t want to “re invent” the wheel any time soon, even though they are drowning in data. Looks like I have my work cut out for me when it comes to convincing them that the creative management of their data via Social Media will, indeed Enrich their business and save them from the pool of tears….
