Scaling design thinking in large organizations

To really drive change within large organizations, it’s often not enough to hire designers. It’s critical to make design thinking accessible to a larger part of your company. Spreading design thinking means giving more people the mindset and tools to be customer-centric.

In this hands-on session, seasoned designers from Idean, IBM, and Google will guide and challenge you to set design free within your organization.

Idean has supported for example IBM, Cisco, Kesko, and Cargotec on their journey of spreading design thinking.
