Are new technological innovations having a disruptive effect on your organizational culture?
This workshop will help you understand the dynamics of disruption, and provide solutions to keep your team poised and prepared for constant innovation.
The World Economic Forum hails our era as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We are already riding the rising wave of an increasingly complex fusion of technologies – digital, biological, material, social – which will disrupt, revolutionize and transform almost all spheres of human culture and conduct. Artificial intelligence, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, genomics, 3D printing, driverless vehicles, ‘the internet of things’, nanotechnology, biotechnology, quantum computing, renewable energy systems; any one of these innovations will have a profound impact on technical, social and organisational structures. The combination of all of them emerging simultaneously is, lightly stated, mind-boggling. We’re entering an era of hyper-complex rapid technological change which will be experienced by most as serial disruption.
How to cope?
How to manage?
How do we become successful navigators of disruptive technological change?
We’ll introduce what technology is, what change is, what organisational culture is, and model the tensions that occur when you put the three together. We’ll create maps of your organisations and their competencies, and reflect on how future technology changes will affect these. Finally we’ll go on to demonstrate how technological innovation can be woven into the culture of an organisation through ‘change agency’ and ‘a culture of curiosity’.
- Introduce the relationships and tensions between technology, culture, change & innovation.
- Practically apply new knowledge to a pressing change & technology scenario.
- Introduce an approach combining change agency and a competence in curiosity which will improve the adoption and/or delivery of technological change.
Through presentations, interactive discussions, solo and group activities including the use of Lego® Serious Play®, this workshop will provide tools, insights and practical approaches for each attendee to successfully apply to their next technology change.
Attendees will receive access to online resources and the opportunity to count the course towards the Certified Change Agent Program.
