Transformation By Design on Thursday, January 20th

Many of us are familiar with the “big ideas” of design and innovation in organizations: collaboration, co-creation, empathy, iteration. But bringing these ideas into our organizations and infusing them in ways that are sustainable, repeatable and scalable can be a challenge.
 
The successes and struggles we encounter in these efforts are often attributed to the same thing: culture.
 
So how might we better understand organizational culture in order to find the approaches that work best for us? In this talk we’ll examine how we can leverage the lenses of organizational design and behavior change to develop strategies that enable meaningful change in our organizations and the growth and adoption of human-centered practices.
 
  • Date: Thursday January 20th
  • Time: 5:00pm EST

Recognize exclusion, design for inclusion

What unnecessary barriers do you (inadvertently) create, and who do they exclude? Bryce will take you through the Microsoft Inclusive Design principles and how they were used to create the Xbox Adaptive controller and then give you some tips on how you can remove unnecessary friction from your experiences. Before designing the Xbox Adaptive Controller the team needed to recognize the barriers that traditional controllers create for people with limited mobility.
