Innovation: What Is It and Can It Be Taught?

ATD 2014 Session: M309
Karen Hough | May 07, 2014 | Video

Getting outside your normal working and thinking mode is critical to creating elegant, meaningful solutions for your organization. Learn how to frame innovation so that your team can experience a whole new paradigm for thinking, based on the skills of improvisation, which leads to more creative, flexible, and adaptive work. We not only examine creativity—we apply it to real situations so that the information is useful rather than theoretical. You'll learn how improvisers can be so creative in risky, stressful situations. We will examine how creative and innovative people and organizations interact, how they manage risk, and the most effective ways to implement creativity in a culture. You will engage in improvisational exercises, small-group discussions, and intense challenges.

The Future of Innovation: Why and How Everyone Must Innovate

ATD 2014 Session: TU215
Chris Pacione | May 06, 2014 | Video

Our concepts of what makes an innovator (eccentric genius)—and who should be innovative (leaders)—are dated and put us at risk for failing to meet the demands of our time. We are in the midst of a seismic shift, whereby the realities of global interrelations, against the backdrop of pervasive connectedness, require that everyone become more innovative. In every sector, at every tier, and at all phases of development, everyone must speak the language of innovation in order to rise to the scale and frequency of today's challenges. But how do organizations develop innovation as a core competency not just among their leaders, but among all of their people? LUMA Institute believes that teaching human-centered design is the answer. The foundational elements of this discipline—problem framing, engaging with people, generating good ideas, and rapid iteration and improvement—are what support innovative behavior. When all levels of an organization are literate in this practice, the tide of innovation rises repeatedly and predictably. This session introduces the thinking behind innovation as an essential human literacy, and takes you through a series of active exercises that demonstrate several go-to methods in support of practicing human-centered design. You will leave with: a new understanding of how everyone can learn to be innovative, immediately applicable job aids for methods covered, and a reference poster of methods and templates.

Measuring the Success of Organization Development

ATD 2014: Session SU304
Lizette Zuniga | May 04, 2014 | Video

The basis for adding value through an OD intervention rests on the rationale for its existence and the extent to which it relates to a specific business need. This fundamental concept requires thorough diagnostics, which are foundational to measuring the effectiveness of organization's development. This session is for those who want to align OD and change management interventions to what matters most. Exercises, examples, and tools serve as a foundation for building a successful OD practice. An organization culture change case study will demonstrate the application of this process.

It is All in the Mind: Change the Way You Think About Change

ATD 2014 Session: SU110
Tenille Halliday | May 04, 2014 | Video

As organizations change, leaders are faced with competing priorities, assumptions, attitudes, and capability gaps. Change management strategy can often focus on implementing new processes and equipping people with the requisite skills. Management can often take responsibility for overcoming and out-guessing the resistance to change. The barriers to change are of course different for every individual, and can prevent new skills and knowledge really 'sticking.' How do we overcome this potential immunity to change? The answer lies first in the mind. For long term sustainable change, leaders must aim to create a culture that is resilient and eager to adapt. They must focus on cultivating people's desire to learn and grow. This high impact session will ignite a new way of thinking about managing change in your organization. The speakers will introduce you to compelling theory and research linking the cultivation of a growth mindset to the creation of a culture that is adaptive and thriving. The session will explore the concept of fixed and growth mindsets, deepen your understanding of single- and double-loop learning, and how to expand people's desire for change.
