How We Work Podcast ft. Mauro Porcini, Chief Design Officer at PepsiCo

March 8, 2023


We often associate “innovation” with “groundbreaking.” But on this episode of the How We Work podcast, we discuss how innovation happens daily. Processes, products, and even one’s own thinking can be tweaked and improved. Those innovations might not change the world, but they may change how we see and move through it.

The best way to stoke innovation is to surround yourself with curious and kind people. As our guest, Mauro Porcini learned early in his career. Mauro is the chief design officer at PepsiCo and the author of the new book The Human Side of Innovation: The Power of People in Love with People. Along with host Dr. Meisha-ann Martin, he discusses his career journey, the people who have inspired him, iterations of innovation, and the power of curiosity.
