About the Show

Who wants to hire people with masters degrees in "administration" when today's business culture demands managers who can master the process of innovation?

That's the question BusinessWeek asked in a recent profile of Patrick Whitney, director of the Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology, the nation's largest school of design. Patrick is our guest this week on Smart City, and we'll find out why cities may be the next design frontier.

We also talk with Libby Sartain, who, along with Mark Schumann, is co-author of Brand from the Inside. Libby is senior vice president of human resources and chief people Yahoo and former vice president of the People Department at Southwest Airlines.

We'll talk about how design and smart people management add value to organizations this week on Smart City.
