Patrick Whitney’s Illinois Institute of Design is putting on one of its terrific conferences on Design Strategy on May 17-18.
Hasso Plattner, the cofounder of SAP and the man who gave $30 million to found the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford will be speak. So will Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of Wired and the Long-tail guy, will give a talk. So will Roger Martin of the Rotman School of Management, Jim Hackett, CEO of Steelcase and others who can provide serious insight into the process of innovation. I don’t miss any of Patrick’s conferences if I can possibly get to them and this one—I’ll be there.
