Engineering Reimagined Podcast: Latest episode

Episode 22: Do we take good design for granted?

John McGuire & Dr Brandon Gien | 11 September 2020 | 22:40

Design has a powerful impact on our lives, from the smartphone we use to stay connected with friends and family to the bicycles that enables us to get from A to B. What lessons can we learn from this creativity to reimagine the manufacturing sector and drive economic growth?

There is mounting evidence that organisations that excel at design significantly outperform their industry peers financially. So should organisations embed design as a strategic tool within their business to improve performance or has the term design thinking done more harm than good? In this episode, Aurecon’s Chief Design Officer John McGuire catches up with Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia, to discuss the remarkable world of design as we celebrate Good Design Week.

About Engineering Reimagined

 

Throughout history, engineers have been leaders in inventing and creating some of society’s most ground-breaking developments. Just think of the Egyptian pyramids, Roman viaducts, the aeroplane, skyscrapers – the list is endless!

But what role do engineers play today, and what does the future hold?

Welcome to Engineering Reimagined. In this podcast series we will explore how, like engineers, people from all walks of life are reimagining the future and their leadership roles in it.

Technology is disrupting our world at a faster rate than any other change in our history. To meaningfully contribute, and to continue to lead society in some of its greatest advancements, engineering needs to be reimagined. Humanity still depends on engineering to help solve the wicked problems our world faces. Not only can engineers make things ‘work’; they can use smart thinking, combined with digital technologies, and a focus on human-centred outcomes to co-create a future in which communities and individuals can thrive.

Each episode will feature an interviewer speaking to a different guest. What can we learn from their compelling and inspiring stories to help us reimagine engineering, to lead the world to a better future?
