What is the future of organizational leadership? Join the experiment.

hierarchies have got to go

Organizational practices are changing – an always evolving business environment and constant innovation have become the new norm.

Communication between people is changing – we are acknowledging the necessary balance between choice and overload from the non-stop flow of information coming toward us.

The way people relate within organizations is changing – linear thinking is out and interdisciplinary collaboration is encouraged; more often becoming required to stay ahead of the curve.

So, what’s next?
As these different facets work with these changes, organizational structures must be called into question. We are presented with an opportunity to transition from hierarchy into a networked leadership model. As we welcome the advantages of collaboration and social technologies, we focus on the attributes needed to deliver results across organizational boundaries. Theories become facts as we discover ourselves in the future of leadership development and business management practices that really work.

In A Field Guide to Creating Cultures of Innovation by Causeit.org, we are given a web of concepts and tools so that we may better embrace this new norm of leadership and productivity.

We are provided with concepts, practices, videos, examples, and even a handy glossary to help us navigate the new ideas being presented and inspire collaboration.

This is a leadership experiment in the making and we hope you will join us for our next Wise Talk on Tuesday, December 18th from 2-3pm pacific time as Mariposa Leadership CEO, Sue Bethanis discusses the transition from hierarchy to networked organizational structures with innovation team consultant, cyborg anthropologist, and founder of Causeit.org, MJ Petroni.

Topics for the interactive discussion will include:
• How do you define this new normal of networked structures?
• How can creative thinkers, be they introverted or extroverted, leaders or technicians, be supported in this new model?
• How can structural and cultural components you and your clients put in place create more innovative and effective organization?
• What practical first steps will make a more creative, hospitable workplace?

Book Review: The Business Model Innovation Factory

The Business Model Innovation Factory: How to Stay Relevant When the World is Changing by Saul Kaplan

Head: (4.5 of 5)
Heart: (4.5 of 5)
Leadership Applicability: (5 of 5)

To stay relevant in today’s changing and uncertain times, businesses require new tools and approaches. In Saul Kaplan’s book The Business Model Innovation Factory: How to Stay Relevant When the World is Changing, he provides leaders with the necessary skills to create a pipeline of new business models in the face of disruptive markets and competition. It makes the case for business model innovation as the new strategic imperative, shows how organizations can reinvent themselves by doing ongoing R&D for new business models, and provides an implementation road map for all business model innovators who want to go from tweaks to transformation.

Kaplan explains 15 business model innovation principles to keep your business strategy ahead of the game, including:

  • Realize that you are catalyzing something bigger than yourself
  • Build purposeful and flexible networks
  • Make systems-level thinking—and action—sexy
  • Be creative and engaged in designing the core models that drive businesses, institutions, industries, and cultures
  • Passion rules—exceed your own expectations and take risks with confidence
  • Be an inspiration accelerator and inspire many toward the end game: transformation

Business model innovation means trying something different, developing a wholly new way to “create, deliver, and capture” value. The simplicity and accessibility of this book makes it a useful resource on how you can design your own business model, learn how to “be a disrupter instead of getting disrupted,” and remain afloat while innovating your value proposition. Click to buy or read more.

Author Saul Kaplan is our featured guest on this month’s Wise Talk where he and Mariposa’s CEO Sue Bethanis will discuss business model innovation. Join us on Monday, September 24th at 2pm Pacific for our free monthly teleconference and have an opportunity to ask Saul and Sue questions on how to capture, design, innovate, and transform your business!

Design Thinking for the Perceptive Corporation

design_thinking1

 

You feel: a sense of constant nagging that your corporation has fallen behind, that product and services are somewhat out of sync, and that your team and general corporate environment are becoming a bit stagnant.

The lack of creativity and innovation within your company has become more and more apparent. The way you design is not consistent or constant, or it may be unclear to everyone. But, what is the best way to problem solve for optimal operations, products, or services?

Well, we can tell you what it is not – it is not to find one solution that will make these problems disappear, because in general that is neither sustainable nor productive in the long run.

A sustainable approach is finding a path that will lead to a well of many solutions (versus one big one) and many small failures. This will inspire new and fresh idea generation.

This path is called design thinking, which includes a deep understanding of (internal and external) customers, frenetic brainstorming, and rapid prototyping.

Stay tuned: our next blog post goes into applications of Breakthrough!  — Mariposa’s design thinking model.
