Episode Description

The buzz: Design. In a world where everyone is expected to focus on execution, there’s a critical need to innovate everything from cars and shoes to enterprise software. The answer to this dilemma? The notion of design is not just for designated “designers”. By leveraging design thinking methodology, we can solve the problems we know, and discover new problems and their solutions. Wouldn’t your company benefit from the best practices of successful innovation teams, and scaling design thinking globally to enrich the ways we work and live? The experts speak. Jayson Mayden, MarkOne: “I am not a Designer. I am simply and humbly a bridge between the generations long past and the generations that have yet to come.” George Kembel, Stanford D.School: “For innovation, prioritize learning over expertise, experimentation over planning, and collaboration over individual excellence.” Sam Yen, SAP: “Beauty is only skin deep.” Join us for Why Design Matters in a Complex World.

Tuesday at 7 AM Pacific Time/10 AM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel

The world of business is being dramatically impacted by the increasing adoption of the Cloud, and by the mainstreaming of new technologies that have hitherto been the domain of imaginative Hollywood films, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, augmented reality and more.

Join host Bonnie D. Graham as she invites you to take an additional coffee break with game-changers for our series on how modern technology is completely redefining the world of business, on the Future of Business with Game-Changers.

With digital transformation becoming a mission-critical imperative, every company needs to simultaneously chart its future path while keeping an eye on the rear-view mirror to see who’s coming up in the fast lane to overtake them. In many ways, this is making every business a technology business, no matter their size, industry or geographic location.
