Design Thinking 4.0: First Steps towards a Post-disciplinary Future - With Ulrich Weinberg

This talk reflects the fundamental pattern shift, which we all are witnessing right now. The shift from a more linear analogue way to think and act with a focus on competition, silos and hierarchy towards a much more efficient, nonlinear digital mode with the focus on collaboration and connectivity. The classical scientific disciplines will no longer be measured by their monolithic function but by how they interact with other disciplines. The competitive „IQ-mode", measuring single people performance, will be replaced by the new „WeQ–mode“, focusing on We-Qualities promoting a “team of teams” habit with new incentive models in education and business.

Prof. Weinberg will present how the HPI School of Design Thinking supports students, leaders, and entire organisations on their transformation path by answering three fundamental questions in a new way: How do we learn/work together? Where do we learn/work? What processes do we use?
