Innovation emerges from a tangled mess of fresh starts, thinking awry, and disruptive technologies – not from following a linear path based on predictable outcomes. While design thinking has emerged as the de facto scaffolding for small and large organizations alike to codify innovation, is it yielding the best results? What are the core challenges for organizations to avoid the Innovator's Dilemma and how can design lead the way?





Valerie Casey is the Chief Product Officer at the Samsung Global Innovation Center, where she provides strategic product guidance for startups across Samsung’s accelerators, and investment and acquisition portfolios. She is an internationally recognized innovator, and has worked with organizations across the world on identifying, building, and launching breakout software and services. Casey has held executive leadership positions at IDEO, frog, and Pentagram. She founded the international think tank, Necessary Projects, and the global design coalition focused on social impact, the Designers Accord. Casey is a “Henry Crown Fellow” at the Aspen Institute, and was honored as a “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum. She was named “Guru” of the year by Fortune magazine, a “Hero of the Environment” by TIME magazine, “Master of Design” by Fast Company, and one of the “World’s Most Influential Designers” by Businessweek. Casey holds a master’s degree from Yale, and a BA from Swarthmore College.
