Restless Reinvention: Transforming organizations to become continual disrupters

At IBM, Design Thinking has driven a new way to team and make decisions faster, and it helps put humans at the center of everything the company does. IBM now employs more than 1,600 professional designers and has certified another 90,000 IBMers in IBM Design Thinking. The result? Diverse teams, working more closely than ever with clients and users to co-create modern solutions that provide differentiated, human-centered outcomes. Phil Gilbert will share his story and insights on helping turn around one of the world’s oldest and most respected technology companies through human centered design and a willingness to reinvent itself, and how this applies to any company, of any size.
