MIT SDM: Democratizing Innovation and Product Design

Webinar: "Democratizing Innovation, Product Design and Development, and Technology Strategy"
MIT SDM Systems Thinking Webinar Series
Ali Almossawi, Data Visualization Engineer, Mozilla; Author, An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments; and SDM Alumnus

Date: February 23, 2015
Time: Noon–1 p.m. EST
Free and open to all

In this webinar, SDM alumnus Ali Almossawi will discuss the benefits of expanding the creative process through open-sourcing on the Internet, where there are more creators, fewer industry gatekeepers, and endless opportunities to engage directly with users. He will:
  • describe a model for open-sourcing the creative process and how it can be used to build a self-sustaining product or business;
  • outline the key players—often a combination of professionals with expertise in technology, business, and/or design;
  • discuss what is needed for team members to work together effectively—and the pitfalls to avoid;
  • provide examples of failure, success, and failure leading to success; and 
  • offer next steps that can be adapted and applied across all industries.

A Q&A will follow the presentation. We invite you to join us!
