Insight

Boosting team performance by embracing diversity

Insight

Adding resources alone will not reduce stress in organizations

Quick insight: Effective meetings

Theory: Meetings require an investment in time, money and engagement. The next time you want to schedule a meeting, should you really do it?

Behavior Patterns: Many of us schedule meetings out of habit as it has been considered a safe way for spreading information and solving problems.

Clinic CICS method: Independent from your intentions, pause and think before you set up a physical meeting: - How much available time do all the stakeholders have? - How crucial is reading body language and facial expressions? - How urgent is your need for responses? Given other possibilities available, is scheduling a meeting the most appropriate way forward?

Quick insight: Effective meetings

Reflection: When increased numbers of employees start to think about these questions, more of their time should be made available for other tasks and information become less individually exclusive. Meetings that still are being schedule should see less number of participants and those present experience higher meeting efficiency.

Quick case: Next generation workplace

Problem: Scattered knowledge, outdated hardware and incompatible systems

Solution: Enabled a strategic foundation for a next generation workplace

Result: View of capabilities and a long-term plan, vision and business case support

Quick case: Next generation workplace

Reflection: We needed all key stakeholders to buy-in to the new approach. Factoring this in from the beginning meant we went on the journey together for a smooth delivery.

Together, organizations and teams innovate

Inflexibility stagnates growth, but poor control erodes value. Innovation thrives when intelligent action occurs between interlinked groups.

“The innovation process puts pressure on team and organizational ecosystems, but with Collective Intelligence, behaviors can leverage reflection and inform tangible outcomes.”

Pierre Jarméus

A REFLECTION: Innovating is a difficult and sometimes chaotic endeavor helped by developing true teamwork. However, just as important is how the organization continuously learns and enables innovation success.

Manage the unpredictable

Project failure rates are often high and costly. This is commonly handled with more structure. Instead, increasing teams task understanding and collaboration skills will ensure execution when things don’t go as planned.

“Successful execution is more than following a plan. It is delivering value through great teams. Dynamic collaboration reduces the need for more structure.”

August Maniette

A REFLECTION: Project management is more than delivering on time, budget and scope. It is leveraging team core competencies so people have a shared purpose and dare to think outside the box with open and honest dialogue.

Service design is creating change from the outside in

The idea is simple yet radical. To step out the door of our organisations and into the lives of the people for whom we exist. There, outside the window, we get to understand peoples behaviors and needs, dreams and desires in order to design for smart and sustainable change.

“Understanding the user and our employees that serve them, help us make informed decisions, prioritize our efforts and design solutions we know they will use and love.”

A REFLECTION: Not knowing what you need to do is the perfect beginning for the design process. It help us discover the right problem and to solve it the right way.
