Innovation is not just a creative approach or new idea. Innovation is about success. To achieve successful innovation, your new ideas have to generate measurable gains in the marketplace, for both your customers and your organization’s bottom line.
In this talk, Seth Kahan defines the seven key activities offering techniques that produce results-driven innovation. These activities demonstrate the difference between leaders who are haphazardly shooting in the dark with good ideas and those who consistently and systematically uncover potential, capitalize on opportunity, and generate traction that drives success in the marketplace.
Change doesn’t flow top-down, bottom-up, or sideways, but inside-out. Real change happens only when people want it to happen; when they feel engaged. In Getting Change Right, Seth Kahan challenges leaders to approach organizational change in a whole new way.
He shows the way to successful, authentic change is through engagement – the need to connect to people, to listen as much as to share ideas, and to involve as many key people as possible in the realization of their goals. When the right people are having the right conversations and interactions, they act in concert, even when the situations they confront are unpredictable.
