POST-CONFERENCE MASTERCLASS: 13 June 2013
Building strategic innovation capability - Limited to 25 participants
Dr. Peter Wilton, Senior Lecturer, Haas School of Business, University of California Berkeley USA)
While many organisations have been created, and indeed prospered, around a key successful business model, often this success has ultimately encumbered the organisation, and made it difficult to adjust to changing market realities.
In many organisations, past investments and the management assumptions underlying them, may make managers blind to new opportunities for value creation and delivery, or slow and ineffective in responding to such opportunities once they have been recognised. Indeed, recent evidence suggests that the more successful an organisation is, the more susceptible it is to the innovator’s dilemma; paralysis due to confusion over how best to react to new opportunities for building and sustaining organisational leadership.
The core premise of “strategic innovation” is to accept that the organisation’s future environment is not a random outcome. Rather it is a created outcome; created by managers who have developed, and are able to articulate and gather support for:
- An alternative vision of how the environment should behave
- Where the organisation is headed and what success will look like
- What stakeholder-value strategies will enable the organisation to achieve this vision
- What specific organisational capabilities must be built in order to sustain leadership over the longer-term
In this Masterclass, Dr. Wilton will illustrate the process of “Building Strategic Innovation Capability”, using practical examples from leading organisations in Silicon Valley and Australia. The process will be further illustrated through application exercises allowing you to effectively articulate your organisation’s envisioned future and an innovation portfolio that will move the organisation towards this future.
