Relationships by Design – A social approach to innovation (Tuesday 29th May)

16 May, 2007

WHAT

If our thinking is shaped by the people we surround ourselves by, it becomes critical to have the ‘right’ set of internal, external, loose and firm relationships to foster innovation. Don’t let coincidence decide relationships in your organisation. They can be designed.

It is a lot simpler than it sounds. By asking a few questions aimed at key internal or external stakeholders we map current collaboration patterns. Then we compare these with the desired patterns, identify gaps and finally design interventions.

This forum meeting will cover:

  • An introduction to the link between innovation and social relationships.
  • How organizations can ‘map’ existing relationships and develop appropriate interventions to bridge gaps.
  • Building simple benchmarks such that improvements can be tracked and measured.
