Jeff Dernbach is a user experience strategist focusing on design for extraordinary users in non-office based environments. He is currently designing and researching in an agile design team creating the future of communications software. Topic: Game theory for promoting strategic human interactions to create designs that matter In this age where the stage is rife with great opinions and ideas, it has become increasingly challenging to converge our actions toward a common goal. In our aspirations to becoming impactful designers, business owners, thought leaders, movement creators, we constantly push our ideologies onto one another. We marvel at how technology gives us the power to build our personalities and paint new worlds. Look around you. It’s about time we step back and devise strategies to help humanity arrive at an ideological confluence. How can we become thought leaders and not get stuck at the thought. How can we reach an optimal outcome that satisfies all parties involved? What mind tools or strategy can we use to get clarity of a playground occupied by actors with different motivations. We will explore the use of game theory to understand how to maximize individual payoffs in a discussion with multiple stakeholders. We will discuss how to frame a game with multiple actors, and learn how to play our best strategies as designers to make equitable choices and create designs that matter. Come join us for a fun time with good food and great conversations! Please note that the price of the ticket does not cover food or drinks. We are looking forward to seeing you there!
