Institute of Product Leadership


Sebastian Gier

Webinar details:

In the talk about “Drive Impact by Design” Sebastian will highlight methods, tools and processes design can help products to be more successful, increase product/market fit faster and improve confidence into the vision both internally and externally.


What do you need to bring along?

  • An open mind
  • Curiosity and questions 

Key Takeaways

  • Designing contextual is key and should not happen in a vacuum
  • Design visions give confidence to the internal and external stakeholders, make a theoretical vision tangible to evolve and help to set business and technology requirements from a strategic and human centred design post.
  • Design experiments should dare to fail to explore new spaces for innovation and explore the unknown
