Authentic and lasting innovation lives in the elusive space between imagination and critical thinking. Every learning and development leader has at one time wondered why a well-planned learning and development program has failed. In this presentation, Matthew Hirst will argue that while such programs have been well planned and delivered, they may not have not been well imagined. He will discuss the real and sustainable business value of creating a development team comprised of “mad scientists” who understand the business and its people well, and who have developed the trusting relationships that allow them to imagine what their organization can do without constraints.
In this brief session, you will:
- Understand the nature, value and application of imagination and ideation.
- Learn how to build and encourage a team that can generate ideas and then identify with their business partners how to operationalize and monetize those ideas.
