Futures-proof your design with anticipatory thinking

Mattia Vettorello

Are you challenged with decision-making on novel design ideas in a connected, uncertain, intertwined and multifaceted reality?

Join us in learning how to apply the Innovation System Roadmap, a cutting-edge tool for strategic decision-making on new value propositions.


Embrace a future-oriented attitude to reframe the thinking and rationale from which you observe obstacles and opportunities.

Sandra Griffel-Ripperger, Susanne Junglas

If we want our work to make a difference, we need to make its impact on user experiences, business success and the environment tangible in a nuanced way. In our workshop, we will show how to set up and maintain a system of metrics (key indicators) in different areas based on qualitative and quantitative data.

[Re]Designing Strategy

Nathan Shedroff

This workshop will explain how to perform better strategy, improve your solutions, and maybe even get into the room where the big decisions are made.
