HUBweek: Systems Thinking for Contemporary Challenges

October 7, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 5:30 pm

Complex challenges require a new way of thinking, working, and leading. Successful companies increasingly use a whole systems, team-based approach to address the complexity of product design and development. To support these efforts, MIT’s annual Conference on Systems Thinking for Contemporary Challenges, sponsored by System Design and Management, opens its doors in conjunction with HUBweek.

MIT faculty will frame the three-fold nature of a whole-systems approach to design—technical, managerial, and socio-political—in ways that can be applied across industries. MIT experts and business leaders will share best practices and lessons learned in designing and developing solar batteries, virtual services, wearables and healthcare for underserved communities, and more. Keynote speakers include Professor Todd P. Coleman, who will discuss the intersection of digital technology, analytics & community health, and Neal Yanofsky, who will talk about how to use the design experience for competitive advantage.

Whether you are an engineer, designer, manager, or curious problem solver, come join us as we examine the points of intersection among technology, business, and social sciences, and how to apply “interdisciplinary design” solutions.
