Talk Description: How can organizations overcome the hurdles of building design and innovation practices? By now, many of us are familiar with the “big ideas” of making design and innovation work: collaboration, co-creation, empathy, iteration, and more.But bringing these ideas into our organizations and infusing them into our work in a way that is sustainable, repeatable and scalable has been a challenge. Hurdles of time, participation, resources, understanding, and risk/change-aversion often hinder our attempts.In our Scaling Design & Innovation Practices track at HXD 2020 we’ll share first-hand stories of the successes, challenges, and practical take-aways that teams have encountered as they’ve worked to overcome these challenges to strengthen and scale their practices.
