Innovation Elegance: What a People-Centric Methodology Looks Like

  • October 12, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • WebEx

Registration is closed

Practically all innovation teams execute software-centric methodologies. The awkward reality is that what makes innovation difficult is people – not software, so a people-centric methodology shouldn’t be revolutionary. It’s really just overdue!

The good news is that the barriers to adopt a people-centric methodology are low and not complicated. Your team’s evolution can be – and should be – thoughtful and gradual. This session shows tweaks to three existing paradigms that improve your organization’s discipline and empathy. The Elegance methodology combats VUCA and improves your employee experience, project success rate, and profitability.

  • Objectives

  • ·       Re-imagine the RACI matrix to reduce ambiguity

  • ·       Re-imagine how to minimize meeting gridlock and email overload

  • ·       Magnify the collaborative advantage in the performing arts

  • Outcomes

  • ·       Apply the Five Verbs framework to improve focus, minimize noise, and avoid Verb Sprawl

  • ·       Imitate the performing art that resonates with you

  • ·       Add tools to shape attentiveness, discipline and empathy
