About the Master Class:
For many years people have believed that innovation is initiated and fuelled by being open and taking risks. While this is partially true, Gaia Grant has discovered from her research with the University of Sydney Business School that much more is needed for sustainable innovation. By identifying 4 key innovation paradoxes and how to navigate them effectively, Gaia demonstrates how to not just survive but to thrive in the ‘innovation race’. Her research on the paradox theory has caught the attention of leading international academics, and she has just returned from presenting papers on her findings at the prestigious EGOS and PROS management theory conferences in Europe.
Taking a fascinating global perspective and utilising an engaging simulation exercise, the Grants explore the current state of innovation and identify what is needed to accelerate us into the future. They draw on 30 years of international innovation consulting with world innovation leaders, and include fascinating facts and case studies from their breakthrough book The Innovation Race: How to change a culture to change the game. They also include the validated Innovation Change Leader (iCLi) Profiling Tool to assist with building individual innovation strengths and a culture of innovation in the organisation. The result is a fast paced immersion experience that blends practical examples from client work, fascinating case studies, useful tools and unique theoretical perspectives.
