In a world that is increasingly becoming Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA), the future of your organisation will hang on your ability to innovate. It’s a Distinct or Extinct world!
But where does this innovation come from? Kodak missed its own moment when it dismissed digital because ‘we make film’. Industry busting ride share came from the tech sector, not from taxi industry.
Your next big thing doesn’t come from who or what you already know. They come from your blind spot. It’s where creativity and ideas generated elsewhere are transported, improved & adapted elsewhere.
So what’s the price of entry into this game? It’s not transactional. It’s not even more systems, processes or strategies (although important). Solving complex challenges require bringing together different people with different ideas, thinking and ways of doing things but it’s only the start.
When connection is personal, people build trust and curiosity to listen and learn from others, and add in critical thinking skills and you have the fuel for innovation.
This week Blue Bus joined Kepner Tregoe (KT) and a diverse and curious group of organisations to create personal connection and sharing ideas, experiences and developing new skills. We’re not sure where this leads but excited and curious to discover what the journey reveals as we move from ‘WD1 to WD2 towards WD40’.
