Roberts ‘Generation Flux’ Presentation
This is one of Robert’s most requested business innovation presentations. The term Generation Flux incorporates both our current era of high-velocity change and the people who are positioned to thrive in this environment.
5 Innovation Lessons for Generation Flux
1. Embrace Chaos
The world is changing faster than ever. Those who want to excel have to adapt. The old rules of business don’t really apply. Businesses have to become faster & more agile.
2. Speed Matters
The speed of change is ferocious and so your company’s rate of innovation must match the pace of your industry. It is imperative that companies build their own rhythm of change and adaptability to stay competitive.
3. Pay Attention to the Next Generation
We have to be open to learning from the micro-generations use of technology. Young people’s comfort with technology has changed the way they approach the world and if organizations can support or augment this new worldview by learning from them, they are taking steps to prepare themselves for the ever arriving future.
4. We Need Each Other
The human factor matters more now than ever before. Creativity and innovation happen in the gaps between silos. Human interaction (effective collaboration and communication) is the secret sauce to new and viable ideas. Human interaction helps breaking down these locked doors to share ideas in new and meaningful ways.
5. Mission & Purpose
Mission and purpose are the ultimate competitive advantage in the age of flux. Studies show workers at companies are less engaged with their work than they have been in the past. Having a mission and purpose which aligns with that of a potential employee can create a more engaged workforce. This will give your organization the edge in the business market.
