Bob Schwartz & Kevin Bethune

What skills, processes, and methods can be learned that help organizations survive, even thrive through disruption? Two successful design executives and DMI Board Members with expertise across industries will share perspectives from the trenches of design: Bob Schwartz, Vice President, Global Design/UX; General Electric Healthcare and Kevin Bethune, Founder & Chief Creative Officer of dreams • design + life. 

  • Bob and Kevin will share key moments where they each faced disruption in their careers- times they faced having to react ... times they could be proactive to get ahead of an impending change.
  • A group exercise will explore the most disruptive forces and important questions affecting businesses. 
  • Each group will work on mapping common questions and discuss people/process/tool solutions to answer those questions.
