World's leading conference on
Strategic Enterprise Design

Bridging the gap between
business, technology and people

The Intersection conference on Strategic Enterprise Design brings together thinkers, doers and leaders with a rich diversity of backgrounds at IT University Copenhagen. Intersection participants join to learn about different perspectives, and exchange thinking, approaches and tools. We seek to tackle our common challenge of understanding and reshaping complex enterprise systems.

We are Enterprise and Business Architects, Service and Experience Designers, Brand and Culture Strategists, Systems and Design Thinkers, Transformation Consultants and Business Analysts.

Enterprise Design as an emerging field has become more than the sum of the various contributing disciplines. In our exchanges with peers and when applying and evolving the Enterprise Design Framework, we see a shift from mutual understanding to actionable approaches.

In this third edition of Intersection after Paris 2014 and Berlin 2015 with DMI (Videos here), we will shape this shared body of knowledge over the course of two days with an impressive lineup of inspiring talks and intense master classes. Join us as participant, contributor, sponsor or volunteer!

Speakers

See below for our first confirmed keynote and masterclass speakers! If you would like to contribute to the conference with the presentation of an Enterprise Design case study, please submit your abstract.


Participate

We are looking for practical case studies on change and impact by design. Did your design work inform strategy definition, instead of just implementing a given strategy? Did you succeed in defining a target state for the ecosystem and transforming the enterprise to get there, by introducing new business models, engaging new partners, or opening new markets? Did you identify new modelling techniques, and new ways to measure the value design delivered to your projects?

We are looking for 45 minute presentations of your project by one or two speakers, expecting you to cover the following elements:

Please submit an abstract of less than 500 words describing your project and the points mentioned above. All accepted presenters will be able to attend the conference free of charge.

We are still receiving belated submissions. So we decided to extend the deadline until February 14. Many thanks to everyone who already submitted a case study!

Schedule

Our schedule will be published early next year after our call for contributions. If you want to be a part of it submit your proposal for a case study or a master class.
