Next Design Leadership Institute

NextD Purpose

NextDesign Leadership Institute and the next design leadership movement were launched in 2002 by GK VanPatter and Elizabeth Pastor as an experiment in innovation acceleration.

We wondered if it might be possible for a small team of practicing designers to help speed the rate of adaptation, by graduate design education, to the radical events unfolding at the leading edge of the marketplace, that are impacting creative leadership, design leadership, innovation leadership today. We optimistically guessed that it might be possible and if it wasn’t, finding out seemed like interesting research! To undertake that experiment, we created the NextD initiative and the NextDesign Leadership Institute.
