Many design processes are predicated on in-person collaboration; organizations and teams have built structures and cultures around innovating together.
The abrupt and rapid shift to remote work as a result of COVID-19 has forced many leaders to adapt these methods and find ways to innovate virtually. This session looks across this new landscape of creative work to examine the future of teamwork, leadership, and the role of design in this new, remote world.
