Innovation in Education Conference Speaker Profile: Josephine Green #iie10
by Alec Patton
As Senior Director of Trends and Strategy for Philips (from 1997-2009), Josephine Green introduced a radical new way of looking at management structures, arguing that we were shifting from a ‘pyramid’ world (defined by hierarchical relationships) to a ‘pancake’ one (defined by lateral connections). She discusses this concept in detail in the interview above.
Since going independent, Josephine has become increasingly engaged in the issues facing 21st century education, and she will bring a unique, design-led perspective to IIE2010.
You can read Josephine’s article ‘From Pyramids to Pancakes’ .
You can download her pamphlet, Democratizing the Future.
