Design thinking is a comprehensive management approach offering a powerful toolset that enables organizations to address open, complex, dynamic, and multiple-stakeholder problems emerging within the context of digital transformation initiatives. The challenges of digital transformation are not just related to the technical aspects of digital technology development or adoption. Managers need to acquire a design-driven mindset to anticipate disruption and drive the transition of their organizations to a digital mode of operation and value creation.
The conference offers participants the opportunity to engage with a team of internationally renowned experts and get familiarized with the ways of using design thinking in managing digital transformation initiatives. The discussion will focus specifically on the need and the challenges of using design thinking in addressing the opportunities for both private and public organizations that arise as significant new technologies emerge. It will be valuable for managers, technology experts, business practitioners, scholars, and students, interested in developing actionable insights on issues related to the adoption of business-critical and transformative digital technologies.
