Event Description

Join us for How to Play the Strategy Game through Design Thinking on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the new College of Business Building at 14th and Vine Streets. 

What does Airbnb, Uber, millennials and fake news have in common? They will transform for the next 30 years most companies and business models in ways that we simply cannot predict. How do you, as a strategic leader, position your company for the future when it is not obvious what the ‘right’ or ‘best’ path is? You can embrace a bold, transformational way of problem solving which may remind you of moments of play as a kid. Dr. Laura Poppo, professor of management, will discuss what design thinking is about, how ‘playing through design’ shapes learning and solutions, and why design thinking is trending now.
