Making Uncertainty and Ambiguity Your Allies for Innovation

These days, companies can’t make it without innovating. Has your company made uncertainty and ambiguity your allies for innovation?

David Matheson, President and CEO of SmartOrg, recently shared some tips for our Execution Excellence video series just this. Here are David’s tips:

·         Focus on learning plans, not execution plans.
·         The key to the learning plan is to focus on proof, which are generally those questions that are outside of your comfort zone. But, if you deliver evidence on them, they will either make it obvious that you need to double down on this project and go. Or, if they don’t’ work out, the idea is likely not going to work.
·         The plan that delivers the proof points is the learning plan, and that is the key to success in innovation.

Watch the full video below: 

David will be speaking at the upcoming Back end of Innovation Conference later this month and will be presenting 2 interactive workshops on “Solving Your Million Dollar Problem.” BEI is taking place October 21-23 in San Jose, CA. Download the brochure for more information:
