OGP has eliminated paper forms in government, achieved a 96% vaccination rate for 5.8 million residents and facilitated the distribution of more than $240 million in relief aid to citizens. OGP achieved this by taking advantage of rapid prototyping and bureaucratic vulnerabilities.

Hongyi Li will discuss the design and strategy used to herd products through bureaucratic constraints, and how to structure a team to maximize creativity and impact in a constrained environment.
