Design for Positive Impact - Timothy Allan
Timothy Allan, CEO Ubco Bikes
To make more sustainable products and businesses, we first need to change the way that we think about new product development:

It’s called lifecycle thinking, and it’s not as easy as it sounds. Putting it into practice, and delivering real positive impact in line with commercial success takes a lot of work. But the results are worth it!
