IBM Design Thinking Program Lead
Jul 2015 – Mar 2017
At a time when the industry had its eyes on IBM’s design program, Miroslav led a team to challenge decades-old design thinking orthodoxy. He defined the theory, crafted the practice, and set the strategy for the adoption of IBM Design Thinking: IBM’s approach to design thinking in a globally distributed, continuous delivery enterprise. Later, he formalized IBM’s internal program to enable, measure proficiency, and certify over 100,000 IBMers in IBM Design Thinking, and helped set the strategy that brought IBM’s Enterprise Design Thinking offering to clients.
