Conley’s new kind of professional

Chris Conley’s A New Kind of Professional declares

There is a need for professionals skilled in navigating innovative work

No specific professional discipline owns this space

There is a lack of professionals who do this well

In my mind I see a castle surrounded by a moat. On each side are designers, engineers and business people. Those willing to leave the comfort of their present situation and explore the castle could leap over the moat, but only if they leave their baggage behind. Doing so means living with others that think and work very differently, and working together to find common ways of working. That’s the place the new kind of professional is creating.
