From Design Thinking to Design Doing

Design-driven organisations have had a tremendous success since we first started this conference back in 2007. Today, most of us working in this field are way beyond the challenge of convincing people that design is a – or perhaps the – key tool to create great business value. Instead, the challenge is often how to best integrate design into our respective organizations, and how to really make things happen.

At From Business to Buttons 2019 you’ll get key insights into how to best collaborate to get the most value for your organisation. We’ll talk leadership, design systems, and how to go from design thinking to design doing. We’ll talk about how to actually use machine learning to add value to our solutions. We’ll even venture into space… This may sound abstract, but on the contrary, this year we’ll be more hands-on than ever. This year, we’re all about doing!

Cirkus in Stockholm

The venue for the conference in 2019 is Cirkus in Djurgården, Stockholm. It was built in 1892 and has been renovated several times, but always remained a true landmark in Stockholm. Almost everyone – yup – from Kraftwerk, Soundgarden to Rolling Stones and Laleh, has made their mark at Cirkus.

The easiest way to travel to Cirkus is by bus 67 or tram 7; the nearest stop is Skansen. If you want to arrive in style, you can also take the ferry from Slussen.
