Tomorrow’s Architects

We think we’re creating programs, services, and software. But we’re not. We are agents of change. Our systems shape belief and behavior at scale. Experience isn’t enough. Methods, metrics, culture, and governance are shifting. As we strive to make sense of artificial intelligence, digital strategy, and the Internet of Things, it’s never been more vital to think expansively about how we organize the future. In this spirited talk about the design of paths and goals, Peter Morville builds upon his famous “polar bear book” to reframe vision, strategy, process, and the information architecture of time; and draws from his latest book, Planning for Everything, to reveal four principles and six practices essential for shaping the future.

Presenter Peter Morville, President, Semantic Studios
