Seth Johnson leads design for IBM’s Enterprise Performance Management organization. Prior to his current role, he led a team to pioneer the infusion of design thinking into IBM’s myriad sales organizations.

We discuss how design is like theater, how creative people have skills that are particularly needed right now (and not just for making things), how our best work is produced with equal doses of ambition and humility, and that if you want to learn something you’ve got to make something.

From our Conversations With Quarantined Creatives series.
