About the Author

KEVIN M. HOFFMAN connects people, ideas, and solutions in order to solve our industry's pressing design challenges. As Vice President for Design Practices at Capital One, he takes responsibility for assessing, exploring, and accelerating all areas of design with a team of more than 70 very talented human beings. Prior to working at Capital One, he founded and led Seven Heads Design, a network of digital design thinkers who collaborated frequently on major projects. Trusted by major brands over his career such as Capital One, Zappos, Harvard University, Nintendo, and MTV, Kevin's roles as design thinker, agency founder, and product manager have given him a unique perspective on how people interact when they make things. Kevin regularly shares his insights at conferences around the world.

Jeff Gothelf is a lean-thinking and design evangelist, spreading the gospel of great team collaboration, product innovation, and evidence-based decision-making. He is an author, speaker, and thought leader on the future of product development and design, often teaching workshops or giving talks on building cultures that support teamwork and innovation. Earlier in his career, Jeff led the UX design teams at The Ladders and Web Trends. He also worked with and led small teams of software designers at AOL.
