Eric Quint

Vice President and Chief Design Officer, 3M Company

Across businesses, communities, and technologies, one aspect remains constant in our connected world: change is ever-present. We know design can deliver competitive advantage, but how can we harness collaborative creativity to take this one step further, driving value, stimulating growth, and enhancing customer experiences?

Global enterprises are often large and complex and recognize the role of creativity and design as an opportunity to become more relevant, build audience engagement and drive transformation into the future. Eric Quint, Chief Design Officer of 3M Company, will share thoughts on how design can create competitive advantage and positive change; and will lend valuable insights into the challenges that we all face as strategists, creative professionals, and change-makers, as we work to drive innovation and enhance brand experiences…by design.

Alison Rieple, University of Westminster

Dr Alison Rieple, is Professor of Strategic Management and the Director of IDEaS (the Innovation, Design Entrepreneurship and Strategy) Research Group at the University of Westminster’s Business School in London, UK. Alison first became aware of and interested in design management through teaching on the University of Westminster’s pioneering MBA in Design Management many years ago. Since then she has been closely involved with the ADIM and its forerunners in organising conferences and championing design management research, such as editing conference proceedings  and special issues of the Design Management Journal.

Her research focuses mainly on management of innovation, especially in the creative and cultural industries. Current projects include the role of the design and innovation ecosystem in the construction of disruptive innovation, particularly related to the Chinese technology sector and 3-D printing, the role of digitization on business strategy, and the role of geography on the fashion designing process. She is the co-author of two books on strategic management and is the co-editor of a book published by Edward Elgar in 2016 on Business Innovation and Disruption in Design. She is currently writing a chapter for the Oxford Handbook of Industry Dynamics on the influences on change in the UK fashion industry over the last hundred years.
