About the owner

design leadership consultant

Pieter van Langen

In business and science, I have always been involved in design. In various roles, I have worked with designers in different sectors of industry. I also work parttime as a senior researcher at Delft University of Technology, where I research the design of complex systems.

I have written scientific papers, book chapters, and a PhD thesis about design. I have taught a great many business analysts and Master students the foundations of design. I am a fast learner, provide food for thought, and do a solid job.
