Date: February 21, 2018; 5:30 pm to 8 pm (registration, panel discussion, open discussion, networking)
Design is becoming a key factor for business success – including customer experience design, product design, service design, knowledge interaction design, and even workplace design. This meetup will bring together experts from design and knowledge management backgrounds, to discuss: (i) what knowledge sharing practices and tools help designers work better (ii) what can designers do to create better working environments for employee collaboration and knowledge-sharing.
Interesting trends to note are the rise of ‘Chief Design Officers’ in many companies, co-working spaces which bring together corporates and startups, and the importance of design thinking workshops in many firms. The speakers will present their own case studies, metrics, trends, and tips for the audience. The 90-minute panel discussion will be followed by group discussion and open Q&A.
