In my book Design Before You Design, I show how you can create greater social impact by applying the power of design to your organization.

Jacob DeNeui outlines strategies to reframe your organizational structure based on what makes sense for your mission, not what other businesses have done. I’m no design specialist, but the way the author uses graphics to illustrate his words makes me confident I can put his wisdom to use.
