    There are two ways for organizations to grow: organically (i.e., through internal development) or inorganically (i.e., through mergers and acquisitions.) In this session, Jorge Arango will discuss how designers can help their organizations grow inorganically. We’ll cover design’s role in creating a whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts and learn three “plays” to help us chart a path towards more cohesive product experiences.
