Ricardo and Dr. Rosita Leong Hall,
Ateneo de Manila University 
Both business and social science have been undergoing a radical transformation in the last 20 years that has fundamentally changed the way in which policies and solutions are developed. ‘Design’ – whether it be product design, service design, process design, or policy design – has been supplanted by a data-driven model. The UK Higher Education is particularly active in the ‘data-driven’ revolution both in business and in the public services. Dr. Kim Kaivanto will talk about how commercial practices can help the design and delivery of public services and policies, i.e., the way in which the following elements are being combined in the most avant-garde ‘data-driven’ businesses of our time: (a) geodemographic and ‘big’ data; (b) experimentation as the primary means of making product and service decisions; (c) choice architecture and ‘nudge’.


Kim Kaivanto holds the post of Lecturer in Economics. He also holds the administrative role of Director of the MSc in Money, Banking and Finance. Prior to joining LUMS, Kim held research fellowships at the Warwick Business School.

The British Embassy manila's Public Lecture Series inivtes UK experts to the Philippines to talk about relevant issues in the country.

This event is open to the public and admission is free.
