Part 2 - for designers and IAs in managing positions

Part 2 was humbly offered at EuroIA 2018 in Dublin, Ireland. Between the first and the second part, I started to lead a team and usually took senior or managing positions in projects. I had become part of the corporate culture, not without a full set of weaponry, that I shared with the audience.

The first part of Being an Evil Mastermind was presented at EuroIA Summit 2013 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Back then it was a reckoning of my experience work as Information Architect or UX Consultant in various enterprise projects.
