Applying the principles of co-design to solve all sorts of wicked problems.

Maurizio Travaglini

Maurizio Travaglini is the founder of Architects of Group Genius, a consulting firm with a transformative approach to solving complex problems through unusual collaborative sessions inside temporary laboratories.

The core of his practice is “co-design,” a topic that lies within the blurred boundaries of innovation, change, learning, and collaboration. Since 2014, he has also served as a faculty member in the Executive Education department at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

Before founding his practice, Maurizio served as Director of the World Economic Forum Davos Annual Meeting Program. He spent over a decade in management and consulting roles at international companies including Nokia, J.P. Morgan, and Accenture.

Maurizio is the co-author of “Unlocking the Slices of Genius in Your Organization,” part of the Harvard Business School Centennial publication Handbook of Leadership Theory and Practice (2010). The article is co-authored with Professor Linda A. Hill, Greg Brandeau, and Emily Stecker (MIT).
