Speaker: Pauly coaches company leaders and teams to become generative thinkers using the design sprint framework.
Working with startups to Fortune 500s, he teaches so much more than just a new skill.
Pauly will help your team bring their best selves to the table; empower them to be curious, vulnerable, and authentic, instill a sense of purpose, and unlock valuable leadership qualities hidden beneath the surface, all while creating a prototype together.
Having founded and sold two design firms and lead design teams in a global software consultancy, Pauly has dedicated his career to understanding the differences and nuances between poor performing teams, reasonably performing teams, and high performing teams.
From Australia to the Bay, Pauly works with teams and companies of all shapes, sizes and disciplines, and has crafted a powerful framework to help any team who is open, willing, and ready, to take their game to the next level.
Abstract: What would happen if your team had a clear focus, actually liked each other, and solved problems quickly and thoughtfully? What if collaboration was actually a thing and not just a buzzword, where everyone got to contribute toward how something should be designed, and not just the loudest and proudest in the room?
What would it feel like to have time and space to think about the problems you’re solving - and support from the management?
Many teams identify as agile, yet when it comes to product design, they default to a waterfall attitude and a selecting bias as to who is a ‘designer’ and who isn’t. As a result, design is considered a function of a department at war with others, and not a company culture.
In attempts to bridge this gap, many teams have tried a concoction of design sprints, workshops, and exercises but failed to create lasting success, repeated performance, or a meaningful impact.
Some even read Google’s book on design sprints, yet fizzled on execution. Others simply have no idea what’s available for them.
