Join us this month for an interactive talk and workshop at IBM where you’ll learn about and experiment with hands on tools that help bridge corporate silos.

We’ve all been there, you host a well thought through design thinking workshop, gather fantastic insights and even prototype some great ideas - and then it fizzles. Your product owner is set on building this one feature, your business leaders have already decided on a specific platform and you know that this is not going to delight your user. In this session we are going to share some war stories & techniques that have helped us overcome barriers to implementing design outcomes. The talk is followed by a hands-on session with people in the room and our livestream audience to help you apply and experiment with some tried and tested IBM Design Thinking tools that can help you bridge organisational silos and get delightful experiences into agile delivery.

5.30pm - Arrival and networking
6.00pm - interactive talk and Q & A (Livestream starts, available)
7.30pm - Close
