KEYNOTE: WILL EVANS Chief Design Officer, PraxisFlow "New Models of Purpose-Driven Exploration in Knowledge Work" e last 20 years have been a period of radical disruption and transformation in knowledge work. e "why, what, and how" of new value creation and delivery in knowledge-intensive work is shiing and the power has moved from the center to the edges. Evans will explore the emergence of new methods of exploration, abductive ideation, and empirical validation that is changing how value creation happens. e very idea introduced by Buckminster Fuller, when he said that everything was becom- ing ephemeralized—doing "more and more with less and less until eventually you can do everything with nothing"—or more recently when Marc Andreessen said, "soware is eating the world," has had a direct impact on information-seeking and information- synthesizing behaviors. Evans will unpack how many of these models and methods are really the exaptation of Lean, Systems inking, and Design inking principles, transplanted from the world of manufacturing into the world of knowledge work and knowledge management. He'll finish by showing how these models can frame the challenges posed by sense-making (experiential) change in knowledge work. At PraxisFlow, Evans works with a select group of corporate clients undergoing orga- nizational Lean and Agile transformations. Previously, he was the Managing Director of e Library Corporation's TLCLabs, the world's leading Lean design innovation consultancy where he brought LeanUX and Design inking to large media, finance, and healthcare companies. Before e Library Corporation, Evans led experience design and research for eLadders in New York City. He has more than 15 years of industry experience in service design innovation, user experience strategy, and research.
