Design Collaboration in the Age of a Pandemic

Presented by

Joe Barkai

About this talk

The COVID-19 pandemic is bringing many business activities to a near absolute halt. If you work in a product organization, activities that used to be routine such as a team meeting for a critical design review or sending a team of experts to walk the plant floor to investigate a product manufacturing quality problem are no longer possible. Overnight, overly lean single-source supply chain strategies and hyper-speed agile product development practices exposed the fragility of many organizations’ product design and supply chain practices. Will the coronavirus pandemic be a catalyst of innovation and drive organizations to invest in design collaboration and supply chain practices to minimize disruptions and improve operational resiliency? Or, perhaps, company leadership will be quick to forget the lessons of the coronavirus crisis and go back to pre-pandemic practices of leaning product lifecycle processes dangerously close to their breaking point? Join Joe Barkai on April 23 at 11 AM EDT to discuss the lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and the future of design collaboration in the post-COVID-19 era.
