Creative Innovation 2019 (Ci2019)

Applying the Disruptive Israeli Innovation Model to re-inventing Corporate Education

Monday, 19 August 2013

By Janet Lea Sernack

Hailed as the “worlds laboratory”, Israel has an enviable reputation as the Start-Up Nation, providing evidence of economic success through authentic entrepreneurship, cutting edge inventiveness and ”out of the box” thinking. The ability to understand and identify the generative challenge, plus the ability to zoom in and zoom out through audacious leap goals and generative inquiry and debate delivers astonishingly creative and innovative results! The secret ingredients behind this tiny nation’s global success and leadership in disruptive high tech innovation through its”provocative competence” will be revealed. How can it be emulated, enacted and embodied within an innovative corporate culture development and learning context will be illustrated. By The Start-Up Game™; a business simulation that integrates adult and experiential principles with gamification processes that builds innovative leadership and start-up entrepreneurship within a business eco-system context. By the Coach for Innovators Certified Program™; an e-learning program that utilizes Theory U to teach leaders how to teach others to Be Innovative. Our presentation will be non academic and embody a pragmatic business context.

"Without a doubt the best conference in Australia with a delightful mix of creativity and big thinking bringing together an eclectic group of industry, community and education leaders. Once again, I’ve come away enthused by new ideas, more aware of future trends, and heartened by the kindness of humanity. We all have a role to play and it should be a collective one."
