Influential Business Thinker Gary Hamel to address NZ business leaders
WHY MANAGEMENT IS FAILING INNOVATION – Gary Hamel, one of the world’s leading business thinkers and authority on management innovation is coming to NZ to talk to business leaders about why we need to reinvent management.
NZ prides itself on its innovation and ingenuity, but how creative are our organisations?
Despite the fact that innovation is often a key company objective, most organisations are not effectively innovating, and management is the cause.
“The problem doesn’t lie with the individuals” Hamel states, “but the organisational structures, where too much is demanded of too few, and not enough of everyone else.”
It is imperative in today’s business landscape to have creative and adaptable organisations, yet our “organisations were built around principles that deify conformance, control, alignment, discipline and efficiency. The principles that organisations have at their core are antithetical to innovation.”
Gary Hamel fears that unless organisations have already started to reassess their management model to anticipate an environment of rapid change and innovation, it may already be too late. To say “time waits for no man” has never been more relevant in the world of business, than it is today.
During his full-day seminar in Auckland, Hamel will provide business leaders with the tools and insights needed to build more adaptable, agile, innovative and purpose driven organisations that are globally competitive, fundamentally fit for the future – and genuinely fit for people too.
