What happens when a global pandemic changes work as we know it? The IBM Patterns Design Education team had to pivot from an immersive, in-person program to an entirely virtual environment in a matter of weeks. That experience left a lasting impact, including recognition from the iF Design Awards!
In this session, Umphress will share ideas for making the most of the virtual working experience, including:
- Being intentional in choosing to conduct live vs asynchronous work sessions
- Utilizing a solid storytelling model to make challenging situations emotionally fulfilling (e.g.: using Enterprise Design Thinking or incorporating the cadence of “challenges and victories” in the Hero’s Journey)
- Embracing the opportunity to enrich programs with your organization’s experts in design, development, and product management
