The Iowa Idea: Miguel Encarnação
“Look for the patterns.”
In this episode of the Iowa Idea, I’m joined by Miguel Encarnação. Miguel is an innovation thought leader and serial chief innovation officer with experience across industries, including banking, healthcare, international development, management consulting, and higher education. He currently serves as head of data visualization (SVP) at Regions Bank and Financial Corporation.
Miguel shares his journey from growing up in Germany, to studying computer science, to working in early, cross collaboration innovation labs, to becoming a chief innovation officer. We cover his innovation management and strategy experiences and discuss why we’re still struggling with decades old problems of human-computer-interaction. We mix it up on the conflation of new technology, digital transformation, and innovation.
It was an honor having Miguel on the show. I consider myself very lucky to work with and learn from Miguel on many innovation, data visualization, and UX projects. I hope you enjoy the episode.
