Innovate Faster, Cheaper and Smarter!
Practically every company innovates and, while we would love to believe that innovation is not a messy business, we know better. Most executives will freely admit that their innovation engine doesn’t hum the way they want it to. In this dynamic and interactive talk, Lee-Anne will describe the ways successful organizations create a reliable, strategically focused innovation function.
It’s not just about doing more with less but doing better with less. The “bigger is better’ approach to innovation is running out of steam for many reasons. Budget-constrained consumers no longer want over-engineered and costly products and services, simplicity is the new design touchstone and employees want to work on projects that matter.
Shake, Rattle and Roll – What Does it Take to Get Your Innovation Engine in Gear?
Every organization is designed to get the results it gets. Savvy leaders shape the culture of their organization to drive innovation and they know its culture that often limits performance. In this engaging, informative and exciting presentation, Lee-Anne will present the five ways to shake, rattle and roll your innovation culture to deliver the results you need.
Ideas Are Not the Problem
Walk the hall of any organization, stop almost any employee and ask them for three ideas that they believe would improve productivity or engagement or growth and stand back. Employees are idea-machines! Ideas are not the problem. The bigger question is how do we access that huge creative potential? Using cases, examples and in-room experiences, Lee-Anne will give you some hands-on ideas on how to best access employee creativity and deliver innovation.
The Positive Turbulence of Change Management
People can be managed; change cannot. Change is supported, accelerated, resisted or led; but it is NEVER managed. It is by its very nature a non-linear, turbulent business. Change is a creative process. Leading change demands that a team leap into an ‘unpredictable’ future where nothing is certain. It requires a foundation of thoughtful planning, an understanding of the transitional process and, if it is to succeed, heightened creative awareness and action.
