The FORWARD Fellowship uses design-thinking to explore the future of AI in the workplace and education.
Dr. Jeff Sutherland, an original signatory of the Agile Manifesto and inventor and co-creator of Scrum, launched his first Scrum team in 1993. He explains why he bans email, why his team had to change its space, and why Agile and Scrum are still so popular today.
How might we design environments that optimize the combined capabilities of humans and machines? This is the central question FORWARD fellows are exploring. Supported by Steelcase and the Savannah College of Art and Design, the FORWARD fellowship invited emerging design leaders from the Americas and Europe to Italy. There, they were exposed to a variety of design thinking methods, research on artificial intelligence and new ways of working before embarking on a nearly year-long quest to figure out how space can help solve a wicked problem.
Why does office space go unused? Why can’t people find places they want to work? Steelcase CEO, Jim Keane, joined Sam George, director Microsoft Azure IoT, for a conversation at Microsoft Ignite 2017 about Steelcase Workplace Advisor and Steelcase Personal Assistant — two new technologies harnessing big data to help people and organizations.
