Ways Forward – Slide from Innovation and Organisation Reorientation talk

Innovation and Organisation Reorientation: For organisations to survive and thrive, they must move from predicting and controlling output, and reorientate themselves towards sensing and responding. They must do this by conducting experiments in the way they work, and by pushing authority to teams.

They must also reorientate themselves towards delivering outcomes, which means using approaches which are challenging and counter-intuitive to many.

This talk explores the existential challenge many organisations face due to a rapidly changing market. It reveals many of the ill-suited ways of working which hinder their ability to adapt. It will describe the approaches progressive companies use to gain an advantage. Finally, the talk will provide specific advice about how you can help organisations move beyond its existential challenge and gain the ability to survive and thrive.
