Org Design: Leadership for a Creative Culture

Monday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Salon 7
110 E 2nd St


As technology continues to change the way we interact, we can learn from digital social behavior how to design creative organizations. This is the foundation of the Stanford d.school fellowship program, which helps restless experts enable emergent ways of working, to accelerate systems-level impact in their areas of expertise.

The nature of leadership is evolving from hierarchical models to emergent ones. In the former, leaders set a vision, assemble a team and direct it toward a predetermined outcome. Here, session attendees will learn to be emergent leaders, to bring together diverse experts and help them find the spaces between their expertise — where unimagined outcomes come to life.
