9:00 am - 12:00 pm Transform Your Digital Workplace with Human Centered Design
Michelle Caldwell - North America Digital Workplace Transformation Lead, Avanade
Ruven Gotz - Workplace Experience LEad, Avanade
How do we get this right?
You are about to make expensive investments in workplaces that need to make
people feel more productive, efficient, engaged and comfortable. You need to create
an integrated digital workplace that ensures a fit between the physical environment
and the productivity tools that people use to get their work done. You already know
that gathering standard lists of features and requirements don’t lead to successful
outcomes. You need new ways to get insights from your stakeholders.
Join us to play some “serious games” and learn how you can use new methods that
have been proven to surface business needs and engage your stakeholders. This is
not just for fun - the results have powerful business value - but trust us, it will be fun.
• In this class you’ll get hands-on experience with Gamestorming and Innovation Games
techniques.
• You will understand how YOU can facilitate these innovative strategies in YOUR projects
• You will gain a deep understanding about WHY these techniques will work in YOUR
organizations

How can a spatial approach to understanding workplace experiences strengthen your company’s climate? How might your workplace more effectively facilitate belonging? And how
can diverse voices and perspectives of key stakeholders inform these efforts? The purpose of the “Building Belonging” workshop is to engage participants around these questions and
explore how a spatial approach to examining belonging and inclusion in the workplace can help decision makers better understand and address the needs of diverse stakeholders.

Key Takeaways
Workshop participants will gain interdisciplinary insights and an understanding of research-based approaches that emphasize diverse personnel perspectives in order to more
effectively design and support inclusive workplaces. As a result of participating in this session, attendees will be able to identify possible design elements in their respective
workplace settings to enhance belonging.
