In a 1966 memo to all employees, then-IBM Chairman and CEO Thomas J. Watson, Jr. declared, “Good design is good business.” At that point in history, IBM used design to demystify technology when computing was new. Almost half a century later, IBM is using great design to create enterprise-class products that people love to use to get their work done. Scaling modern design across a portfolio of thousands of products that serve clients in more than 170 countries is much more than a two-pizza team challenge—and we like it that way. Oh, and btw ... we’re hiring! Please visit ibm.com/design for more info.@ibmdesign
