Talking about Innovation is fun.
Playing to win is hard.
The best way to increase your odds of success is to learn how to manage constant change with the right people up and down your team. This is at the core of the conversations you can have at the ISPIM Innovation Forum in Boston March 25-28.
The International Society of Professional Innovation Management brings together leaders from around the world and around Boston to share what they are learning and to take on the toughest issues and biggest opportunities.
You can get the Member Rate ($495 – $830) by choosing “Creative Chaos” in the “Member Organization” section of Registration.
These are some of the most important questions that will be answered:
- How to attract diverse talent?
- How to better engage innovation teams?
- How to manage change in an innovation environment?
- How to manage teams for successful technology development?
Creative Chaos is participating in three events (see our “Triple Play” piece below) – Talent, Shelter, and the “Experience Innovation Sessions” with our CTO Umair Aziz on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 27th…
Umair will be following up Scott Kirsner’s Innovation Ecosystem session with a deep dive into the building and iteration process including the many forms of hand-offs – coding, integration, knowledge-sharing, etc.
Here is an overview of his session, “Base Hits: What it Takes to Win”…
It may come to you as a bit of a surprise to learn that the very best batters in the league “strike out” (fail to get to at least first base) 7 out of 10 times. A season average higher than .300 is considered excellent in modern baseball.
What this means is that we have to think carefully about what it means to succeed. We have pretty unrealistic expectations from our corporate innovation teams. There is a default expectation that each initiative will be successful – everyone in the team will ‘hit it out of the park’. And when that does not happen, we end up having the wrong attitude and or ask the wrong questions on why innovation is failing.
The lesson to take from baseball is that you need to understand and define what it means to be successful. We will discuss and define the ‘bases’ for successful innovation delivery and how your teams can take advantage of success frameworks to improve their ‘innovation delivery averages’
Next, join us as we head over to Hill Holliday for a visit with one of Boston’s most accomplished Agencies and a panel discussion of innovators from diverse global organizations sharing their experiences with “Digital Disruption.”
Then more cocktails and conversation at Fenway Park!
