Summary: True institutional sustainability means effective technology management, including finding opportunities, gaining executives’ buy-in, and moving forward with our best ideas. It is important to avoid distractions (financial concerns, internal power struggles, finding the “big idea”) so we don’t overlook opportunities around us. We should enact the leadership capable of piloting our organization to success, to ensure that our capabilities are keeping pace with market realities and emerging opportunities. To achieve the goal of business sustainability, we need to tap into the genius of each employee for new product ideas and then provide the leadership that fosters the trust and collaboration needed to bring those ideas to fruition.

Learning Objectives:

— Discover the three hidden barriers to sustainability that hamper organizations.

— Learn four steps for activating employees to identify emergent opportunities.

— Take away five principles leaders can implement to support sustainable innovation.

“Leslie’s keynote on innovation clarified and focused my understanding of innovation and how our team needs to move forward.”
