The UTS MBAe program welcomes Dr Tim Rayner, Author and Lecturer at UTS, to celebrate the launch of his new book Hacker Culture and the New Rules of Innovation.

Running a startup and trying to bake innovation culture into the foundations of the entreprise? Trying to inject more creativity and agility into your company and running up against bureaucratic mindsets and barriers to change?

You need a radical solution. You need to build a hacker innovation culture.

Hacking is not a criminal activity. Hacking is a way of solving problems by running short experiments and learning from the results. Hacking plays a major role in the design and startup industries. Software developers hack products in iterated sprints, enabling them to respond to changes in technology and market conditions. Designers hack product and service ideas by prototyping and testing them with users. Entrepreneurs hack business models by building MVPs and running customer experiments to validate their assumptions. The CEOs of some of the world’s largest tech companies proudly flash their hacker credentials. Hacking has become a mindset and a way of life.

This panel discussion, moderated by Dr Tim Rayner, examines how to build a culture of hacking and experimentation in your company. You’ll get a detailed introduction to the following topics:

  • How to be a hacker (even if you can’t code)
    ● The role of hacking in UX, product, and service design
    ● Hacking business models for continuous innovation
    ● Mindsets and cultural frameworks required to create an environment for hacking
    ● How to culture hack established organisations for agility, innovation and growth

This event celebrates the launch of Tim’s latest book: Hacker Culture and the New Rules of Innovation. He will discuss the role of hacking in the design and startup industries and share key concepts and practical insights from the book relevant to entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, managers and CEOs.

The panel participants are:

Dr Tim Rayner, Author
Tarra van Amerongen, Group Director at Fjord Australia
Tom Bass, Product Manager at Nearmap
