News & Opinion: More on Dan Roam...

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:05 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

As Dylan mentioned last week, we're a big fan of Dan Roam's The Back of the Napkin.
It seems others are catching on to the Roam trend. Tom Peters deemed him worthy of the Cool Friend title where he was interviewed by another guy we like who uses words like "grok" in regular conversations, Erik Hansen. BusinessWeek mentioned Dan and his drawings last month. And, if you open up to page 45 of your latest copy of Fast Company, you'll find another piece about Dan and his napkin sketches.
