Exploring Transformative Change Series - Event #4

Summary / Description

After two decades of software-centric methodologies, innovation teamwork has some big problems. Communication traffic jams discourage companies from pursuing all the innovation work they could pursue. The congestion and friction discourage companies from hiring all the innovation workers they could use.

An obsession with speed has caused meeting gridlock, messaging overload, and the communication traffic jams. This session shows how an obsession with synchronization is what companies need to achieve speed, improved project success rates, and an improved employee experience. An obsession with synchronization will improve companies’ confidence in their projects and their people. An obsession with synchronization will improve the job market. An obsession with synchronization is a people-centric methodology.

This session shows how small changes to familiar concepts shapes innovation teams to be obsessed with synchronization. These changes raise a team’s discipline and empathy, simplify messy project plans, and convert your organization’s communication traffic jams into an orchestra.
