Corporate Innovation Trends
The life of an S&P 500 company is rapidly declining and increasingly, the risks to these companies comes from an armada of startups and not a giant incumbent competitor. We dig into how corporations can use startups to innovate faster and how to make the important build, buy or partner decision.

The Strength of Vulnerable Leaders
Leaders do not have to be perfect in order to be successful. Quite the opposite. Admitting mistakes, being open and honest, and accepting foibles and flaws yields far more effective results than projecting an untouchable facade. Tough leaders may inspire through fear or intimidation. Vulnerable leaders inspire with authenticity and humanity. And it’s the latter that is more likely to yield better results.

Three lessons from Doteveryone’s digital leadership programme
Think “nurture”, not “roll out”: there is power in harnessing change from within
Especially in the public sector, there’s a sense that innovative ideas come from outsiders (consultants, new hires, etc.) rather than from existing staff. But often, teams within organisations are already experimenting and road-testing solutions to the challenges leaders are expected to address.

We need to foster a mindset of continuous improvement and experimentation amongst our leaders, and then encourage them to do the same in their organisations — creating the space and support for their teams to try new ways of thinking and working.

All things in moderation: healthy exploration isn’t the Wild West
Some of the most passionate discussions we’ve seen are around how to get people to use the ‘right’ technology or the right “tools” in an environment that is otherwise encouraging exploration and experiments. (“Right” in this case means the technology that has been selected by the organisation.) “Experimentation” isn’t the same thing as “download and use whatever products and services you want”, but sometimes things get lost in translation.

We need to help our leaders understand why their organisations use the technology they use, and then better communicate those choices. By balancing the space for experimentation alongside the need to deliver against a common purpose, we’ll help teams better understand why one app needs to be picked over another or why a less exciting service is the best one for now.
