  2. In a TED talk, conductor Benjamin Zander said, “the conductor of an orchestra doesn’t make a sound. He depends, for his power, on his ability to make other people powerful.”

    As creative leaders, we also depend on our teams for our impact, our music. Imagine being a well-designed leader that knows when to stand up and lead from the front and when to sit down and lead from behind. A leader that invigorates the collective wisdom of a team, nurturing it as a dynamic, capable entity instead of managing it in pieces.

    In this talk, Alla will introduce the dimensions of a well-designed leader and show you how to lead from a systems perspective to cultivate and amplify the brilliant people on your team.

  3. Studies have shown the correlation between diversity and innovation. Yet Silicon Valley, the cradle of tech innovation, is dominated by a “brogrammer” culture where white guys in their 20s work in a testosterone-fueled environment to create the next technology revolution.
    This sends a contradictory message to leaders that diversity, while good in theory, is not worth investing in.

    In this talk, Janaki Kumar will share her personal experience as a design leader who values and fosters diversity in her teams. She will make the case that working in a diverse team is delightful, and the benefits outweigh the effort. She will leave you with practical tips to build and nurture diversity by design.

  5. Resilience thinking provides a framework to understand the growth, reorganization, and renewal in complex systems. We can apply the same principles to design management when we lead teams and products as well.

    At its simplest, resilience thinking prepares us for change—slow, subtle shifts over time and unpredictable significant events that can threaten those that aren’t prepared to adapt. Viewing management challenges through a lens of resilience thinking can lead us to prepare ourselves and our organizations for the unknowns that inevitably await.

    After establishing a shared understanding of resiliency, robustness and complex systems, using examples from business to nature, we'll apply that understanding to real-world design managers face every day over time.

    We’ll explore how to prepare teams to scale to embrace new challenges. We’ll also understand why building for peak control, efficiency or optimization can lead teams and products down a dangerous path. And we'll learn how such a framework for addressing other similar design challenges can help us profit from such complexity and uncertainty as leaders of designers and the products we build.
