Transformation Toward Design Driven Institutions
The mechanism creating innovation is required transformation due to the backdrop of service economy, complex system issues, and development of information technology. Now service systems are considered a value co-creation platform. It is important to model service systems considering temporal change and analyze the transformation to ensure we meet the needs of the stakeholders of the business school. This session will encompass service design processes that business schools could/should adapt, what this model means for future leaders and how we should be preparing our students.
