E104: Kip Lee – Crafting Arguments by Design

Innovation Sherpas Ben and Jay interview Kip Lee, Vice President of Innovation & Product Strategy at University Hospitals, and a Managing Director of UH Ventures. He’s pursuing a Doctorate in Design and Innovation at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University, and serves as an editor of the journal, Design Issues, published by MIT Press.

In this inspiring conversation, Kip shares a bit about his background–such as designing at Marriott International–and the lessons healthcare innovators can apply from the hospitality industry. He describes the origin story of the UH Ventures group and how they worked as nomads across the University Hospitals organization, developing empathy and conducting ethnographic research simultaneously. We are thrilled to have our listeners listen to and learn from this wise and kind innovation leader.
