Haakon has worked as an Interaction Designer, Customer Insight Expert and Consultant (Razorfish, Creuna, Tarantell and Making Waves) for 13 years. Since 2013, he has worked at SpareBank 1. First in the strategy department, then head of the design departement. When he started in 2015, the department had three designers. Today the department consists of a total of 19 designers who work within business design, service design, interaction design and graphic design. The experience from these years in SpareBank 1 leads to today's lecture on how the designers try to influence the organization to work differently - more driven by hypothesis.
