Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Keynote & Panel
German and English language

In this session, Stanford’s pioneering design thinker, Bernard Roth, explores the notions of radical collaboration and user-centered design as a basis for corporate-wide organisational principles. Together with Austrian executives, he looks at what problems cause business leaders sleepless nights and how they can reframe their mindsets in order to tackle organisational challenges.
