Fast Company/Co.Design: IBM invests 100 million to expand design business, 2014-Mar-27 by Mark Wilson

“The world is sort of waking up to design thinking, new ways of thinking about problems and solutions to problems,” John Armstrong, North American Leader, IBM Interactive Experience, tells Co.Design. “We’ve seen in all of our research, CEOs are very focused around the customer experience.
