Built for Innovation: Creating Organizations that are Changeable
Presenter: Edward Lawler
Organizations are built to perform, not to innovate. But in today’s highly competitive business environment, organizations must be ready to innovate and change frequently. Organizations cannot sustain excellent performance unless they embrace change and innovation. Instead of striving to create a highly reliable Swiss watch that consistently produces the same behavior, organizations need to be designed in ways that stimulate and facilitate change. The focus of the session will be on identifying practices and designs that organizations can adopt so that they are able to innovate.
1. How to design an organization that is changable.
