    I guess it all depends on what does Design mean for the company you are working at.

    Is design the product design? Is it the brand/marketing design?

    Dirk pointed out most of the things a excellent Head of Design:

    • Being able to define strategies and measure impact of these

    • Promote design across the business and show the value design provides

    • Understand the operational aspects of design and how to improve – reduce cost, encourage innovation

    There are literary hundreds of things an excellent Head of design, it all depends on how mature the company/the team is.
