To Transform Inertia, Design Behavior
Track: Place + Locus

The client just cares about cost. The principal isn’t really interested in integration. Half the project team has bought into sustainability and health goals… and half hasn’t. We hear the same complaints from even the most progressive designers year after year. Ugh… inertia. In this session we’ll identify and then design the behaviors and processes that we actually want, applying novel tools from Stanford University’s labs. Not just another session about integrated design (“won’t work here”) or trickery (“what’s this broccoli doing in my chocolate?”), you’ll go home with specific, easy, fun, collaborative, momentum-building wins for your practice.
