Are leaders equipped with 2020 vision?

Eight challenges leaders will need to address in the coming decade

The pace of change in modern business is dizzying, and leaders who aren’t prepared for the challenges on the horizon may find themselves leading their organisations into the history books.In 1958, the average lifespan of a company listed on the S&P 500 stock exchange in the U.S. was 61 years. Today that lifespan is just 18 years – and falling.[1] At the current rate of attrition, three quarters of companies currently listed on the index will have changed in the next decade. The story’s the same in stock markets around the world.

Create a culture of innovation

You may have the budget, people and structure in place that you think you’ll need to support innovation, but if you don’t also have the right culture, you’ll struggle to get the results you want.

How do you get everyone in your business to be more innovative?

Developing innovation in your organisation

There are clear markers of an innovation culture. They include:

  • An appreciation of creativity.
  • A willingness to experiment.
  • The ability to make swift decisions once experimenting and testing is done.
  • A belief that everyone can contribute to changing the things that really matter.
  • A connectedness to the client who uses your products and services.

We can work with you to create this culture. How we do this will depend where you are now and what you want to achieve. We can help you explore and exploit ideas: these are very different, but equally important.

We can look at how you create processes that organise people for innovation, and how you use people to create those processes. We’ll look at the existing culture in your organisation: where do ideas come from, and what happens to them? Are people inspired to be creative and think from multiple perspectives?  Is there a central point for ideas and experiences, however tame or radical? How do you showcase new ideas, talent, and success?

There is no one perfect organisational structure, design or culture for innovation, but there are ways of organising that will work for you. We’ll help you find them.
