Making Room for Innovation
How Your Processes Are Getting in the Way
In today’s increasingly complex and uncertain business environment, traditional management skills are no longer adequate enough to handle the speed and volume of change happening within the marketplace. As companies like Disney and Google have proven, being successful in the current landscape requires business leaders to balance strategy execution with adaptability and, more importantly, innovation.
Making Room for Innovation: How Your Processes are Getting in the Way discusses:
- How business leaders can embrace change in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world
- The business risks of being too married to your processes
- Strategies for fostering innovation within your organization
- The importance of learning from mistakes and turning them into opportunities to adapt and improve
Thriving in a VUCA world requires line of business leaders to be more than efficient. They need to know how to think outside the box and adapt to a rapidly changing business world. In most cases, linear, waterfall approaches to project-based work can’t sufficiently address the complex business challenges many organizations are facing. Now, more than ever, companies need to learn how to apply innovation to all areas of their business—or risk being left behind.
