Taking a wide view of the business world reveals many challengers to current industry business models, often fuelled by new technological innovations that are creatively applied to overturn entrenched players. Applying the re-imagining discipline allows organisations to re-think work practices, organisational structures, corporate culture, and even their business model. This discipline is the necessary antidote to staying stuck in outdated approaches, with the attendant costs of reduced market share, decreased competitiveness, and business failure.
Key contributions to date on re-imagining effective work include:
1. Keynotes and Presentations. Presenting on re-imagining effective work at severals conferences around the world (New Zealand, Australia, United States). For example:
– Change Management for Digital Transformation – Keynote at Digital Workplace Conference 2016 (August 2016)
– Re-Imagining Effective Work at Collabosphere 2015 (September 2015)
– Re-Imagining Effective Work at Intranets 2015 (May 2015)
– Re-Imagining Effective Work at the SharePoint Conference in New Zealand and Australia (2014)
2. Blog Posts. Sharing my learnings and explorations around re-imagining effective work (and related ideas like digital transformation) on my blog. Blog posts focus on applying the re-imagining discipline, highlighting examples of re-imagining and transformation from across the world, and case studies. See Re-Imagining Effective Work on my blog.
There remains much to do under the auspices of re-imagining effective work.
How do you approach the re-design of work practices, organisational structures, and business models in light of new possibilities? I’d love to hear your story.
