Key Design Principles

We'll discuss the Key Design Principles required for the success of media businesses with a range of key industry executives following the publication of our first Design for Tomorrow report.

We'll explore areas such as how to protect a business against potential disruption, how to respond quickly to rapidly changing market conditions, and how to plan for growth in an uncertain world.

The common principles defined in this first Design for Tomorrow report will provide the lens through which all the subsequent specialist areas are examined. Five more reports and events will follow this autumn.

This 75 minute event will start at: 16:30 BST / 17:30 CEST / 11:30 EDT / 08:30 PDT

No media company will emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic intending to be the same as it was before. Every company will seek to redesign itself so that it can operate more effectively in any future global crisis. Design for Tomorrow is a series of six special reports and six webcasts - each the product of bespoke research across the DPP membership.
