DESCRIPTION

(We're at a new venue this month! Please note that we're not meeting at Pivotal Labs.)

Poverty, climate change, public health, digital inclusion, workers rights, affordable housing & transportation, criminal justice reform, urban sprawl & gentrification the Big Problems facing communities across our nation & world require complex analysis & stakeholder alignment well beforea process & wire frame can be designed, or a line of code written.

There are no check-lists for success in the startup world, & there sure arent any silver bullets when tackling the Big Problems of our time. Emerging technologies (IoT, AI, blockchain) & modern methods & practices (lean, agile, design thinking) cannot solve these structural issues, but they can give leaders new tools & data for decision making that thinks more holistically about the public good & sustainable value creation.

In this talk, well look to answer the questions: What does it mean to be a responsible business, efficient government agency, effective non-profit, & an engaged citizen in todays world? How can we adapt frameworks like AgileUX & tools like machine learning to solve challenges larger than delivering healthy food to wealthy people?
