Strategy and Business Design

Come explore what it means to lead with a designer’s mindset. We’ll investigate what qualities demonstrate design leadership and inspire you with a set of experiments to take home and try in your own organization.   

We live in a fast-paced world where every company is facing change due to new technologies, new business models, and new competitors. This calls for a new mindset and a profoundly new way of reducing risk, decreasing time-to-market, and finding new paths through continuous experimentation.

We believe that the designer’s mindset and methods for creative problem solving holds a huge potential in meeting and navigating uncertainty and ambiguity – and active design leadership is the fundament in helping companies unleash the business value of design.

Who is this workshop for?

You are probably an aspiring design leader who’ve started practicing design thinking and now looking for inspiration on how take the next step towards unlocking the business value of design in your organization.
