 Scott is Director of product design at DAZN

Scott has worked for prestigious companies including Amazon, the BBC, and Sky. He builds and leads great design teams that deliver world-class user experiences to global audiences.

Working for such large corporations, Scott knows how difficulties it can be for teams to act autonomously. He also knows the best innovations and ideas come from teams that have been given the freedom to approach problems the way they want.

He sat down with Andy to discuss how teams in large companies can be given the freedom to solve problems in their own ways.
