Design approaches are transforming the way we change our organizations and work. We’re celebrating a milestone in our design research at the Design Factory in a day filled with keynotes from design leaders and researchers. We’re also celebrating the launch of two books drawing from the Design+ research project, Björklund & Keipi (eds.) “Design+ Organizational renewal and innovation through design” and Maula & Maula “Design ja johtaminen”.

To keep it active, we’ll also have short table discussions and a Q&A session for all of our keynote speakers.

Everyone is welcome to this event. Come join us to learn from our experiences and bring your own insights to the table!
