7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern

An Innovation in Action Series

Description:  While most functions are best served by knowing the Why, How, and What, the innovation gets a boost by first asking Why Not, How About, and What If, and then rallying others around you with the why, how, and what. You need an Inspiring Next Circle to complement Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle and become the ambidextrous business you need to be, today. Why Not … questions the status quo and challenges the assumptions holding you back from investing resources in unchartered waters. It is one of the great questions to kick off an exploratory effort. How About … initiates conversations around options and possibilities that may otherwise remain untouched. It is well suited to explore alternate pathways.  What If … helps foresee different outcomes from different actions or scenarios. It is well suited to exploring the end games.  Together these questions inspire teams to innovatively break through barriers.

Learning Objectives: Innovation framework of four constituent models:

1.      Innovation Purpose: Why not … Best for the world?

2.     Innovation Value Chain: How about … Best in the world?

3.     Innovation Framework: What if … Innovation is structured?

4.     Innovation Mindset: Why not … Start with the why not?
