Tim Brown, CEO of one of the greatest design companies in the world, IDEO, hires people who are T-shaped.
I-shaped people are traditional experts, specialist in one field.
T-shaped people are the best creatives, able to empathise with a wide field and apply their mastery to new fields.
Many of these skills have come because I've run my own business and had to do everything.
Other skills have come because I've often worked in small organisations.
These skills help me to empathise with other members of the design process. For example, I can more easily work with finance to create effective solutions for displaying data, having a business background.
Please read below for some of my general skills. Also check out a timeline of my work experience.
