Dr. Marci Rossell, Former CNBC Chief Economist and Co-Host of SQUAWK BOX
Trade wars, Brexit and the upcoming U.S. election are buffeting economies worldwide. Consumers and businesses are in a “wait and see” mode, but that won’t tip the globe into recession. Join Dr. Marci Rossell as she considers how the economic growth unfolds in the year to come.

Yesterday’s fast is today’s unacceptable. New business models and the speed of business is forcing us to think not just bigger but radically different. “We’ve always done it this way” will put you out of business. In a race to remain relevant in this accelerated cycle of innovation, companies are under constant pressure to get to market faster with products and services that help their customers outpace their competition. “Slow” has become another word for “obsolete.”
Moderator: Jon Browning, CEO, Global Mentorship Initiative Panelists: Maryana Iskander, CEO, Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator; Mamadou Biteye, VP, Social Impact, EMEA, VISA; Stacie Herring, VP, Consumer Services Experience, Intuit

In the digital era, business leaders don’t need more theories on how to innovate; they need a practical playbook on how to harness disruption to continuously reinvent, grow sustainably and scale to a profitable “new”—all just to remain relevant. Organizations need to maximize their core business by making continuous wise pivots at the right time. But that’s only part of the equation. Highly adaptive talent is required to keep pace with the constant business and technology change while also anticipating and shaping it. With the help of advanced analytics and new technologies, organizations can hyper-personalize experiences, reimagining the workforce to unlock hidden potential and fuel growth and disruption.

Design thinking is a term first introduced in a 1987 book on architecture and urban planning. Its precepts, however, predate that. Robert McKim of Stanford University’s School of Engineering introduced a similar itnerative design process that in 1973, and engineer Rolf Faste expanded, on the approach to design thinking courses at Stanford in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Nearby Palo Alto-based design and consulting firm IDEO grew to build a thriving business helping companies apply design thinking — which it defines as “a human-centered approach to innovation that draws from the designer’s toolkit to integrate the needs of people, the possibilities of technology, and the requirements for business success” — to product and service development. Today, IT service providers are adopting the approach. Design thinking is taking shape as an integral part of business processes and outsourcing solutions. Join Mary and executives from Infosys and ISG and work through a DT exercise, leaving with action items to take back to your team.
