Alchemy of Wasted Time Framework: This is a method CX practitioners can use to stay innovative, customer-centered, and open.
This is a fun and provocative presentation of this innovation framework in the context of sense making, media evolution, cognitive science, motivation theory, and the digital humanities.
We are at an important juncture in our technological and social evolution that requires focus and acumen and something else: poetry, imagination, and daydreaming. The Alchemy of Wasted Time is a framework for us – the makers and thinkers of the science fiction present – to organize our activities so as to include portions of the arts and humanities, experimentation, and daydreaming. Creating and maintaining a healthy dream/work balance will ensure that our emerging machine environments are centered on us, and not us on them.
Corey Pressman (@cspressman) is our presenter. He’s a strategist, anthropologist and futurist with over 20 years’ experience providing clarity and direction to clients and partners of all kinds. As VP of Adaptive Strategies at Fiction, he generates, manages and works on projects with large corporations, universities and startups to help them envision and enact human-centered communication and innovation.
