Rethinking the pyramid structure

 

Guest Post by Transform 2013 Presenter, Susan Mazer.

 

The pyramid is the common model for company leadership. However, turning it upside down is the magical way an organization can grow into its potential.

In a small company, department, or committee, the actual distance from the top to the bottom is often small. And, the top of the pyramid is clearly a lonely place to be.

Is a pyramid so fixed in space that the person at the top has to be only one person?

Dissecting Innovation

By AJ Montpetit

Dissecting Innovaiton

 

Post written by Ron Amodeo, Director, Office of Business Development - Mayo Clinic

 
Dissect your company’s old innovations to create the right culture for new ones
Of the many ways your organization might try to become competent at innovation, dissecting an internal innovation project (whether it failed or succeeded) is a relatively risk free and cost-effective approach to building innovation know-how.

By studying how a past innovation evolved, your organization can develop a shared model useful for undertaking innovation projects in the future.

Watch Your Language

 

Robert Conn, M.D., presented this year at Transform about how he learned to look through a new lens at language and how it affects our ability to effect change. Dr. Conn is a former children's heart surgeon who put down his scalpel to launch SMARTRISK, an organization dedicated to preventing injuries and saving lives (and keeping people out of the hospital).
