Navigating uncertainty: The art and science of learning and doing 10x in a tenth of the time and resources
Our current time of heightened uncertainty gives retailers a window of opportunity to explore the relationship between the questions we ask and the answers we find. In other words, retailers should use today’s uncertainty as a springboard for tomorrow’s creative inquiry. Join this presentation from globally renowned futurist and tech innovation expert Pascal Finette to hear how, in this environment of uncertainty, the time is ripe to explore new problem-solving approaches, rapidly iterate on our ideas, gather customer feedback, and validate our assumptions – all while minimizing time and costs. In this session, you will learn the art and science of the innovation methodology used by organizations such as Alphabet’s GoogleX to move from conjectures to validated insights in the least amount of time and the fewest resources.
