The Digital Leadership Community: Design thinking to unleash the true potential of digital technologies in your business

20. september 2019 kl. 06:30 - 08:00

As a member of the Digital Leadership Community, you are this time invited to discuss «Design thinking to unleash the true potential of digital technologies in your business.»

To reap the true benefits of the new digital technologies we need to think differently around how these technologies can help us transform our way of working and how we interact with our customers. The technologies itself will not solve problems, but it’s the innovative human centric thinking around the business models that will really allow us into the transformation.

Come and learn from Per Ivar Selvaag, Head of Design at Equinor’s Digital Center of Excellence. He presents the company’s decision to adopt human centered design into a complex organization, with several hundred ongoing individual initiatives; both big and small.

The Norwegian Polytechnic Society offers signature seminars on cutting-edge digital and transformative topics guided by top profiles. Talents, experts and leaders from various industries gather to share learnings, insights, perspectives and challenges, so that we can collectively learn and accelerate Norway’s transformation to a new digital era. Digitalization is a key enabler for fundamental innovation and disruption – and the leaders of today have a unique opportunity to shape the future.
