This is my third post on this year’s Design Thinking 2021 conference. Earlier ones shared information on my talk about Human Centered Artificial Intelligence (HC AI) and another award opportunity in the Design Champion category.

The list of finalists for the Enterprise Award Category feature Carrier Global Corporation, BetterUp and Nokia. Our team shares best wishes with our peers at Carrier and BetterUp. We look forward to connecting at Design Thinking 2021 to exchange insights and discuss our common passion in furthering the relevance and business impact of design in everyone’s best interest.

In Nokia’s case, there is a need for crediting the tireless work performed at our Venture Design Studio (VDS) in the area of new product and service innovation by six cohorts since the VDS’ inception. Customer centric practices, interdisciplinary skills and creative talent shape our diverse mindset. That leads to a set of emerging and non-conventional workstyles that we put to the test across a number of initiatives addressing system design, operations and collaborative knowledge sharing.

Our co-creation engagements range from early use case ideation to the design of sophisticated systems conceived to create new value while operating at ease. We deliberately seek meaning and outcomes that effectively transform how our customers, partners, peers and also ourselves work to get things done. In this context, intertwining value, simplicity and culture articulates principled design decisions.

At the time of writing this, I am in the process of completing my presentation materials for Design Thinking 2021 where I will be discussing Human Centered Artificial Intelligence (HC AI) driven by Quality eXperiences by Design (QXbD). Here is the link to the abstract for that session, which has been scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday, September 21. Admittedly, this is bitter sweet since I will be missing Nokia‘s Algorithm World, which takes place that same day at the Nokia Chicago Innovation Center, my home base.

I am very glad to share that Nokia is this year’s twice finalist for awards in the areas of Digital Transformation and Design Leadership. This post shares last night’s news on the later. Given the caliber of the participants, this is a humbling experience which credits the thoughtfulness, ingenuity and passion of the interdisciplinary cohorts involved at the Venture Design Studio (VDS) and the opportunity to work with customers, partners and peers, who happen to be among the best in industry in today’s changing environment.

At a personal level, I am not only grateful for everyone’s consideration, but also for the opportunity to continue to actively contribute to our shared interest in the Design & Innovation community around devising sound technological solutions that put people first. On our team’s behalf, I would like to also convey the very best to Tata Consultancy Services and to Chrysalis who are also finalists for this year’s Design Champion Award. Looking forward to seeing you and continuing the discussion onsite and online as needed.
