About the session

If you want user-centred services to flourish in your organisation, you will need to design your organisation's operating model. But changing your operating model is a risky endeavour. Organisations are often complex systems where the law of unintended consequences reigns. Prototyping helps us to test assumptions and de-risk the grand ideas that so often fail on implementation. This session will cover principles and approaches for designing operating models:

What is an operating model, and why should designers get involved?
How to design a user-centred operating model through prototyping
Getting comfortable with uncertainty, risk and politics
Dealing with imposter syndrome when playing in an MBA environment

Conference Themes: Org Design; Skills & Tools.
