Video: Innovation: Growth from Uncertainty

  • May 6, 2022

The recent crisis has created levels of uncertainty seldom seen before. Work (how, where, who and what is done), technology, economics, education, geopolitics and society as a whole are changing at a pace that is hard to keep up with. However, this has the potential to be a catalyst for innovation, enabling organisations to meet evolving customer needs with new products and services. 

Business leaders face an uncertainty dilemma: all possibilities come with uncertainty and the unexpected has possibility hidden within. But because we are wired to fear uncertainty we miss the possibilities.

This event addressed the question why crises spur innovation and how to replicate the successes in a more ‘stable’ environment. Through interactive presentations, discussions and exercises we explored the issues from an organisation, team and individual perspective, looking beyond our own organisations and industries to learn about the factors of success.

The comprehensive Post Meeting Notes summarise.

The event featured three main speakers, and their three corresponding videos follow.

  1. Innovation for the sake of what? led by expert, former CEO and award-winning speaker Hamish Taylor
  2. The upside of uncertainty, from INSEAD Professor of Strategy and Innovation Nathan Furr
  3. Making innovation happen by design from CEO and Founder of Achieve Breakthrough, Mike Straw
