Confronting Assumptions & Reducing Risks

Published on

This is a preview from The Mobile Academy Autumn 2015 programme run by Julia Shalet. Julia is Course Director at The Mobile Academy, Founder at Product Doctor (her campaign for people-centred innovation) , a team member of the @leanplc team at Pearson and Co-Organiser at Mobile Monday London.

The Mobile Academy is a 10 week evening course for innovators where industry experts deliver sessions in business, design and how to work with mobile technology, bringing the sort of real life case studies that you can't find in the text books.(It does not teach programming!). Participants are encouraged to get involved in curating the programme and bring with them a diverse range of skills from varied backgrounds. It is a new style of programme called "community based learning" and has been designed to offer up practical tools and tips in a fast moving industry.
