The hardest part of making any change is taking that first step. We may point our shoulders in the direction we want to travel, but planning our change journey and mapping the steps to get there can still feel overwhelming. This is true for co-creation and open innovation projects, change programs — even personal change.
Often it helps to be with others who are on a similar path. It also helps to have tools that simplify steps and offer motivation. That is why I’m delighted to invite you to an exclusive conversation I’m having with Braden Kelley
, respected innovation expert and author, on Thursday, January 15 from 12-1 EST.
Braden is an experienced speaker, change strategist, and social business architect. He is the author of Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire, and an upcoming book on best practices and next practices of organizational change and project management.
Our Q-and-A session is interactive, so you can ask questions too. Braden will share key tools and guidelines from his new, not-yet-published book and visual change-planning toolkit. He will discuss:
- How organizational change and project/ portfolio management tie together
- Useful frameworks to move from the ‘what’ to the ‘how’
- Best (and next) Innovation practices
- Roles and responsibilities based on the Nine Innovation Roles (from his last book Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire.)
- How innovation is all about change.
Braden has been advising companies on how to increase their revenue and cut their costs since 1996. Braden writes frequently on the topic of continuous change and innovation and works with clients to create innovative strategies, effective customer marketing, organizational change, and improved organizational performance.
