You've heard about the potential of design to improve or radically disrupt business. Academics as well as practitioners have been writing and sharing stories on the topic for more than a decade now. You have probably tried it and realized how complex it is to introduce and establish a design-led approach to innovation in a large organization. You are not alone in this struggle. At Livework we have developed a 5-year research involving dozens of large corporations that have opted to introduce design, to understand why such process is so difficult and what can we do to facilitate it. The half day workshop aims at sharing best practices in innovation and key learnings from some of the most advanced companies in this space. The session will be highly hands-on enabling participants to reflect on their individual organization and generate a possible roadmap for improvement that highlights critical hotspots and opportunities.
This workshop is not just for design leaders. Business Owners, Entrepreneurs, Design Managers, Product Managers, Marketing, Operations and Innovation Leaders will all find the workshop an invaluable set of tools to align a team or organization on a collaborative path towards innovation.
Workshop Key Takeaways:
- Confidence in your ability to be innovative
