Technology is rapidly disrupting how we interact and work. As a result, our organizational structures are becoming outdated and need to be more agile to respond to these shifts. Justin Ferrell, an experienced educator and creative practitioner, will explain how we can learn from digital user behavior to design creative and agile teams that enable the organizations. This human-centered approach is the foundation of expert Justin Ferrell’s approach to building organizational and team change.

In this Leadership Series episode, we offer attendees information and thought-provoking insights on designing organizations and teams for digital disruption:

  • Why: The nature of organizational systems is evolving, from hierarchical models rooted in the assembly-line Industrial Age, to emergent ones accelerated by the Digital Age.
  • What: In an emergent model, leaders inspire diverse teams to co-create unimagined outcomes in the space beyond their silos. Unimagined outcomes, by definition, can lead to a redefining of the ecosystem — the disruptive innovations that change the world.
  • How: You can use design thinking to redesign/reimagine your organization and teams to navigate this emergent and disruptive reality.
