In this talk, Organizational Designer and Strategy consultant Will Evans poses these five provocative questions which he will explore with wit, a bit of biting sarcasm, and a healthy dose of compassion:
How can companies develop product design processes that help the organization adapt to change when nobody likes change?
How can companies foster emergent innovation within the organization while spending all day in countless meetings?
How can leading enterprises approach digital transformation when they all seem to fail miserably at it?
What are the principles of a resilience strategy for companies that can’t seem to figure out what the hell they are doing?
Why is becoming a “Design-Driven Organization,” so damn hard, probably a pipe dream, and why most advice from experts, consultants, and UX thought-leaders isn’t just wrong, it’s probably a fraud?
Learn new frames to revitalize your product design organization, to gain cooperation, to improve strategic thinking and creative problem solving, to boost performance, and to extract maximum benefit from new options.
