SAPPHIRE NOW 2018 – ASUG Annual Conference

As I prep for the SAPPHIRE NOW – ASUG Annual Conference next month in Orlando, FL, all I can think after this cold and snowy spring in Minneapolis is thank goodness it is somewhere warm!

June 5–7, 2018

I am co-presenting this year with Georg Fischer, Chief Product Manager, SAP SE in the Can Organizational Change Ever Be Easy? A Design Thinking Perspective Session on Thursday, June 7th from 11:00 AM to Noon.

In this hands-on session, we will use design thinking methods to identify the key challenges financial organizations are facing. The presenters will also discuss potential methods of resolution for divestitures and reorganizations.

There are so many amazing sessions this year geared around Design Thinking and I want to share a few of them that may be of interest to you.
