Technology and Design: Innovation in Business (G1 Global 2019)

G1 Global Conference @GLOBIS Tokyo, Sept. 16, 2019.
Disruptions such as design thinking have helped every industry focus on people-centric innovations and more efficient business processes. Generally, this has resulted in more satisfied customers and more fulfilled employees. In the most successful cases, designers and traditional business people have come to respect each other and collaborate, though it wasn’t always easy. How will developments in technology impact these delicate relationships? What existing practices will be disrupted, and what innovations will emerge? Will the current trends become mainstream, or will they be swept away by new techniques bolstered by digital advancements? Our panelists will discuss the challenges, pitfalls, and opportunities of the future of technology, design, and business.
