The pandemic has accelerated change in how innovation is inculcated into organizations, scaled, and monetized. Design Thinking challenges and changes persistent dogma and creates new innovation efficiencies based on process design, operational innovation efficiency, and conversations for design.

Best For: Senior executives and high performing teams where innovation is core to success including AI, IoT, Mobility, Robotics, Blockchain, and the Spatial Web, and other technical domains.
