The Leading Conference On
Strategic Enterprise Design

X18 — Scaling Ambitious Endeavours

X18 – Scaling Ambitious Endeavours


For the fifth time, Intersection conference brings together thinkers, doers and leaders in Enterprise Design. This year we will meet at the Theater Royal in Prague. Our theme is Scaling Ambitious Endeavours, and we will exchange on current thinking, practical approaches, real-life cases and useful tools.

6 years after publishing our book Intersection introducing the Enterprise Design Framework and idea, we are witnessing the emergence of a global and diverse community of practitioners. We are Enterprise and Business Architects, Service and Experience Designers, Brand and Culture Strategists, Systems and Design Thinkers, Transformation Consultants and Business Analysts. To be successful, we need to design the enterprises that shape our societies and economies, and spark innovation and transformation at scale.

After Paris 2014, Berlin 2015, Copenhagen 2016 and Barcelona 2017 we will shape our 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 or sponsor!

Participate

We are looking for practical case studies on Scaling Ambitious Endeavours. Is your work changing your own or your client enterprise at large, making it perform better and deliver more value to customers? Do you overcome silos, old management styles, and rigid procedures? 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 techniques to map the enterprise at scale, and new ways to measure the value design delivered?

We are looking for 45 minute presentations of your case study 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.
