[Raymond], our annual Design Management retreat is a place “where design professionals meet and exchange their surprisingly similar challenges”. This year’s invitation only event, [Raymond] 2014, focused around the theme of Design Resources; deep diving into where to FIND people, how to RECRUIT them, how to DEPLOY them, and how to DEVELOP them. Developed from an experience design approach and delivered in a “gamification” format, the event was played out by teams on a game board switching between a mix of researched “fast facts” and “deep dive” challenges which were brought forth by the participants. With special guest Tom Lockwood (former President of DMI and now leading a top tier design recruiting firm) as lecturer and game participant and a great mix of design leaders from leading global companies across Europe, the even brought forward new insights and best practices on how to build great design resources!
