When we talk about design leadership, we mean it in both senses: distinctive design leadership in the market and leading design in the organization. In this tutorial, we explore what that means, how we develop design excellence and leadership in ourselves, and how we nurture it in our teams. We combine an introduction to key topics (with some exposure to related concepts, research, and theory) with some practice elements. We survey essential topics in system design and what it takes to be effective, and then delve into effectiveness areas, including strategic context understanding and shaping, organizational skills such as communication and influence, and how to be a more effective technical leader.
