ABSTRACT: Craig Saila will share a design-led product model he uses to help organizations integrate human-centric mindset into a sustainable cycle of product development and growth. The process relies on an intentional combination of traditional design and product management skills to create an integrated system rewarding established practice strengths. In turn, this helps encourage the creation of spontaneous moments of insight and inspiration. In the spirit of this, the presentation invites audience participation to help explore the ideas more completely.
