Enterprise Design Webinar Series

Our series of four webinars with Milan Guenther is now available for viewing at any time.

The webinars cover these topics:

  • Reinventing IT: How Strategic Enterprise Design Leads Digital Transformation
  • Experience Mapping: Customer Obsession for IT and Digital professionals
  • Enterprise Design Sprints: Empowering your Intrapreneurs for Rapid Innovation
  • Scaling Enterprise Design: a Management Framework for Agile Environments



QualiWare and eda.c continues the collaboration. Our next event is our open retreat to Tel Aviv in March, where we will go deeper into these topics.

3rd Enterprise Design retreat

eda.c and QualiWare team up and arrange the third gathering on Strategic Enterprise Design on March 6-8 in Tel Aviv. Over the course of 3 days at the Nalaga’at Center in Jaffa Port, we will jointly shape the emerging field of Enterprise Design.

In its 3rd edition after Barcelona and Iceland, our event brings together enterprise rebels inside and outside of organizations, and promote a trans-disciplinary exchange on common themes and challenges, tools and techniques, and new thinking. Despite our different backgrounds in design thinking and doing, enterprise and business architecture or analysis, brand, customer and user experience, culture or business transformation and systems thinking, we share a common goal: make enterprises act less awkward and more humane.

After two retreats, three conferences and with a growing community of practitioners, our focus shifts – from understanding what each other is actually doing, to how to achieve impact and collaborate.
