In Chapter 1 of 22 in his 2012 Capture Your Flag interview, innovation strategist Hammans Stallings answers "What is Getting Easier and What is Getting Harder in Your Life?" As a strategist working at a design company, Stallings notes how it is getting easier to bring his varied skills together to serve clients. He notes a growing challenge is understanding that more and more of his work is different than anything done before, which pushes him to look outside his industry as he crafts client strategic plans. This is Hammans Stallings' Year 2 CYF interview. Stallings is currently a Senior Strategist at frog design. Previously he worked in business strategy at Dell and investment banking at Stephens. He earned an MBA from the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management, a MS in Technology Commercialization from the University of Texas McCombs School of Business and a BA in Economics and Psychology from the University of Virginia.
