Disruption is a given state of today's times. Talk of sustainable advantage is futile as competitive advantages evaporate in no time. Staying ahead is an everyday battle. We all know this. Don't we? The problem is not that we don't know the problem; it is that we don't know the solutions. It is our constant quest for solutions in this constant state of redefinition that is the moot issue.
No single discipline or area of knowledge holds the key to today's solutions. Delivering effective innovation, creating new value requires the power of Convergence, convergence of several disciplines as a unified force. It is time for us to harness the potential of our super-competitive, hyper-connected world and mitigate the cascading risks.
Design has emerged as an integrating force, a catalytic tool to cause and leverage convergence. It is the art of possible, which unearths fresh approaches that look beyond the narrow prism of a particular method to myriad opportunities and possibilities.
The theme of 14' th CII NID Design Summit is "Design Trinity". In today's interconnected and complex world, it is the trinity of business, technology and design that is essential for companies and societies to achieve new products, new services and new businesses.
The summit will be a forum for initiating new conversations across the domain practioners and experts who would deliberate to articulate and combine definitive ideas and methods to define solutions for today and tomorrow's organizational needs.
We are interested in questions such as:
How design catalyzes new value creation across product and services?
How designers help industries and companies rethink everything they do?
How design leverages technology?
How the role of designers have transformed in the changing context?
What attributes design, business and technology share in common and what sets them apart?
