In the wake of Brexit, international trade wars and VUCA - the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of our world through globalisation and digitisation - the importance strategy, agility and adaptability have become an integral part to success in business performance. However, many businesses are lagging behind and not all cultures respond to those new challenges in the same way. In some cultures, people struggle even more with these fast and constant changes, which of course has a major impact on the way the organization needs to handle the necessary transformations.
Frequently, it is assumed that innovation technology is an object or product. Taking a different stance in this introductory workshop, we explore the assumption and focus that people, communication processes, and mindsets are extraordinarily powerful innovation resources. The key question therefore becomes: How do we set conditions for this resource to flourish and bear fruit? In the first part of the webinar, we will build the foundation with key frameworks; the second part consists of brief units of application and experimentation.

Even managers in domestic organisations are likely to work with employees from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
