    Design Thinking for Clinical Trials

    in Science

    Design Thinking is a human centered approach to innovation that helps uncover the sweet spot of opportunity where the needs of people, the possibilities of technology and the requirements for business success all converge. The application of the Design Thinking methodology (originating out of Stanford’s d.School) as a new approach to looking at solutions can lead to disruptive innovation in clinical trials for drug development. It allows for designing new ways of working, including the needs, challenges and insights about the complex world we work in.  


    In this discussion, we introduce the basic principals of Design Thinking and an understanding of how the methodology teaches empathy for the end user (the patients). We explore its ability to reframe questions and unleash innovative thinking as well as the "downside" of creative tension. Most importantly, we address how Design Thinking can drive more successful trials.  


    Hosted by Valerie Bowling, Executive Director of the Conference Forum, guests include:


    Kate Helber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Jen Reichuber
    Co-Founder, The Helber Group


    Komathi Stem
    Strategic Innovation Leader, Genentech/Roche


    Kate, Jen and Komathi will also be leading a hands-on program, May 11-12 in Boston. For more information, click here.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with San Francisco Jewelry Artist Sarah Graham

    in Art

     


    Our guest on Metalsmith Benchalk on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015 at 3:00 PM PST is San Fancisco jewerly artist, Sarah Graham. 


    Please join us for this live interview and participate by logging onto the chatroom or by sending a message to Whaley Studio's via Facebook Instgram or Twitter. 


    About Sarah:


    By incorporating innovative materials with her exceptional design sense, Sarah Graham creates jewelry that is unlike anything else; organic, textural, with a muted palate that is subtly feminine, yet substantial; unique, yet universal in its appeal. The natural inspiration behind the jewelry – whether cast directly from Jacaranda Pods and decayed wood or rendered in wax from a microscopic view of single cell marine organisms – gives her designs a texture and feel that makes them infinitely wearable. But it is the matte black finish of oxidized cobalt chrome juxtaposed with 18k yellow, rose and white gold, set with colored diamonds, that is its’ most eye-catching element.


    Sarah’s statement making jewelry is exciting and elegant with a constant stream of new designs flowing from her studio every year. This, along with Sarah’s unique combination of business and retail experience, traveling, a rigorous apprenticeship and her dedication to providing amazing customer service to her clients, ensure many more years of success for Sarah Graham Metalsmithing.


    Sarah is currently vice president of the American Jewelry Design Council. She currently resides in San Francisco , CA  and works with a staff of seven at her Dog Patch neighborhood studio.
