Our annual offsite meeting is going to be enriching in a number of ways from learning a useful practice for modern product development to hearing the story of how that practice spread from IBM Austin to 46 studios worldwide in 5 years.

About the Program:
Design thinking is at the center of IBM's innovation strategy. Design at IBM literally places the customer's end users and their needs in the center of the product development process at the start.
IBM Studios has grown from its beginnings in Austin 5+ years ago to 46 Design Studios worldwide that employ 1500+ renegades and realists.
PHIL GILBERT, General Manager of IBM Design, sets the strategy for and leads the transformation of product design at IBM. Previously, Phil led the Business Process Management segment for IBM, where he drove the simplification of its portfolio and the ease-of-use of its products. Phil joined IBM in 2010 via acquisition of Lombardi Software where he was President. Phil is a recognized leader in the technology industry, holds multiple patents, and has lead three successful start-ups.
