Envisioning the Future: Why multi-disciplinary Teams Matter

Alan Kay is quoted as saying “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” In this session the presenter will share his experience hiring, managing, and cat herding a multi-disciplinary team focused on developing prototypes of technologies 3-10 years out. Through real world examples and demos, he will discuss the challenges and rewards of managing a group of creative design thinkers.
