Humantific at Design Next in India

Humantific CoFounder, Elizabeth Pastor will be giving a talk on SenseMaking for ChangeMaking at the Design Next / Inspiring Transformation Conference in Pune, India December 1-3 2008.

From the conference program: “The Value of Design: There is more to design than simply about “look and feel”. Design is about creating strategic solutions to business problems. The speakers in this section will describe the importance of design in todays economy and will talk about the increasingly crucial role of design in competitiveness of companies in the global economy.”

Of course to answer the question about the value of “design” one has to be able to decipher and explain which “design” one is referring to. Elizabeth will be talking about the value of Design 3.0 / Transformation Design.
