"Innovation, Collaboration and Concurrency: 21st Century Necessities?"
The context of the 21st century is very different from anything we have experienced before. Processes and structures that have served us well in the past are no longer working, and predicting the future seems next to impossible. These conditions pose unprecedented challenges and uncertainties for government, business and individuals alike.
In her presentation Dr von Stamm will explain the key drivers behind the current context in which we operate: the rate of change, connectivity, convergence, changing consumer habits and challenges to humanity. She will examine the implications of each key driver, suggesting that to successfully navigate these turbulent waters, we must embrace innovation and concurrency.
Breakfast will be served at 8.00am in the Courtyard, with the Lecture beginning promptly at 8.30am.
About the speaker:
Dr. Bettina von Stamm has been an original and visionary thinker in the field of innovation since 1992, a passion which was kindled during her MBA (1990-1992) and deepened further when she returned to London Business School for her PhD. She holds a first degree in Architecture and Town Planning.
Having worked independently since 1992, she founded the Innovation Leadership Forum in 2004 through which she offers innovation masterclasses, seminars and workshops as well as coaching and advisory services to help senior managers and innovation leaders understand and address barriers to innovation and create sustainably innovative organisations.
Tools she has developed include the Innovation Wave®, a facilitated assessment tool for innovation capability, and a methodology that facilitates the elicitation of implicit knowledge and assumptions which is critical in the highly diverse context required to make innovation happen.
Her written work includes four reports on “Innovation Leading Practice & Future Challenges” and three books: The Innovation Wave - an introduction to holistic thinking in innovation for senior managers, Managing Innovation Design & Creativity - a textbook (2nd Edition) and The Future of Innovation (with Anna Trifilova) which knits together views from over 150 innovation experts, and has an accompanying website. She is currently working on a new book: Everything you ever wanted to know about Innovation.
