Innovating From WithinBallroom B   Level 3
Find out how the best organizations develop innovation as a core competency not just among their leaders, but among all of their people—and how what designers naturally do on a daily basis can be expanded to foster courageous problem solving in your team. This session introduces the thinking behind innovation as an essential human literacy, and will take you through a series of methods in support of practicing Human-Centered Design and championing everyday use of design practices throughout your organization.
Our concepts of what makes an innovator (eccentric genius)—and who should be innovative (leaders)—are dated, and put us at risk for failing to meet the demands of our time. In every sector, at every tier, and at all phases of development, everyone must speak the language of innovation in order to rise to the scale and frequency of today’s challenges. Find out how to bring Human-Centered Design to your creative team and your organization.
