Innovation defined by the Ops Paradigm: Where do people fit?
March 08, 2019
It wasn’t just the Virtual Machines. Or the Cloud. Or acronyms that ended with “as a Service”. At least it didn’t seem to seem like serious disruption was going to march down the halls and make upper management really have to juggle the org chart and really cozy up to the head of IT (was there a Chief Technical Officer, or just the Director of Technology?)

Bravery is Required for Innovation to Happen
August 05, 2020
This image is a graphic recording (or sketchnotes) I created from a brief talk by Trish Martinelli about the personal journey of starting to work in creative ways that leads to being a full-time innovator. It doesn't matter what field you're in, or the kind of work you do, it matters that you overcome both the "self-talk" of doubt that comes when you go against the tide and, perhaps even more importantly, when you can stand your ground to face un-tested opposition to your innovative work. Bravery is a key strength needed for innovators to use and for innovation to happen, particularly to counter resistance to change in business and in life. Design thinking may sound like a classroom exercise where cool heads prevail, but corporate politics can poison the smallest step towards something different. And shifting a culture through Change Management doesn't sound like there are going to be more fun office parties, corporate swag or the latest portable device. Regardless if your input or charge to carry out innovation isn't a product or service, but changing a process, re-organizing a business, or changing the business culture, you most certainly will be challenged with questions as direct as, "Who authorized you to have ideas?" or other ways of creating an "US vs THEM" situation. Will you be pitted in the middle? Reframe the concept of being innovative as something that everyone has input and a stake in, so the ownership (and celebration of success) becomes, "We all though the world was flat, but look, together, we discovered it's round!". Find your champions, allies and support. Be wary of bad blood you may cause by not considering the politics and culture you are working in and use emotional intelligence to address these situations, and stay brave, even if your idea fails. After all, the process of creativity doesn't produce a masterpiece every time, but repeated efforts will exercise your strengths and, with the right audience, right time and right venue, will change the game for all!

Sheltering at Home and Managing Innovation Remotely
May 04, 2020
Innovation can come with small changes, or with a single email. Or one meeting with a screenful of the faces of the workforce showing up all at once. What happens when the hierarchy of workflow and decision making is wiped out by a mix of asynchronous and synchronous communication, with the immediacy of the current pandemic forcing decisions to be made NOW? Change, pivot, change again, respond, measure, react, propose. The is the action side of my little motto, #bebraveanditerate - it will be a different environment in 7 days or less!

Design Thinking and Strategic Scenario Planning Training and Facilitation

Location: Virtual (Worldwide Remote)    Date Available: February 17th, 2020     Fees: Assessments priced at standard

Submission Date: February 17th, 2020     Service Type: Service Offered

Is Innovation and Transformation a mandate in your strategic plan, yet you haven't found the right method to make that happen? Have you engaged in M&A activity and found the disruption was more from attrition, stagnation or stalled initiatives, and failed cultural change? There is no one, singular "right way" way to make innovation happen, start with an assessment (Standardized assessments including DiSC®, MBTI, Simplexity® and Innovation 360®) and build a program and plan that works for you, based on human-centered design/design thinking and takes into account where BigData, data science and AI will keep you in the game.
