Design a Culture of Innovation
Peter Leeson - Founder and CMMI Specialist @ Orchestrated Knowledge
11th November, 9:00-10:30
There is no future without innovation. If you believe that your business will remain the way it is/was in the best of times, you are ready to be replaced by Artificial Intelligence, by robotics. You will rapidly drown in routine and maintenance. Young, dynamic people will not see you as a place they want to join, bored staff will not really want to stay, clients will upgrade to your competition.
The future lies in your ability to change, improve, invent, innovate.
An innovative culture will attract the best people in your business, improve staff and customer retention, and your leadership position will attract more. But, can you design a culture? Do you understand the implications of culture on innovation, quality and customer retention? In this workshop, I will help you identify the need, the objective, and the way forward.
This is not a webinar; it is a workshop to help you design a culture for innovation. You will be expected to participate, answer questions, and make suggestions. This is aimed at being practical, based on what is happening in your work environment and cultural issues. However, don’t worry, everything is completely anonymous. (Even those participating in the workshop will not be able to relate your statements to you unless you allow it.)
The purpose of the workshop is to get you to start considering what needs changing in your environment, and how you can get it initiated or finalized.
Participants will receive an electronic copy of “Vitruvian Quality”, the new book (in progress) by Peter Leeson.
Peter Leeson is a free-lance consultant and coach focused in business effectiveness. With some 40 years’ experience in the software industry, he is a former process improvement appraiser and instructor for the CMMI Institute. He is an internationally renowned speaker, instructor, and consultant. After spending many years being a process improvement consultant, Peter has focused more and more on the need for job satisfaction and the feeling of achievement as the ultimate key to quality, which means lower time to market and lower costs. Peter has worked in nearly every continent (still missing South America and Antarctica), and believes that any change for the better in an organization has to be deeply rooted in the culture of the country, the organization and the team. Rather than pushing a standard, model or theory, Peter believes in identifying the most pragmatic approach to resolving quality related issues in the organisation by a clear alignment of top-down objectives, goals and strategies, with bottom-up practices and culture.
