Jeff Gothelf: Building successful in-house innovation teams

  • March 31, 2014 · 6:30 PM

We're very pleased to announce that Jeff Gothelf will be coming to London to speak at one of our Meet-Ups!! Jeff Gothelf is one of the thought leaders on the topics of Agile UX & Lean UX. This will sell out and we will be shooing people away at the door, so get in early...

Building successful in-house innovation teams 

You’ve read The Innovator’s Dilemma. You’ve bought in to The Lean Startup. You’re ready to kickstart your company’s product innovation efforts. There’s just one problem: you’re not sure where to begin:

- What can design teach us about building a collaborative culture?
- How do you structure a successful product design team?
- How should that team work?
- How will that team measure success?

Jeff will offer practical, step-by-step, guidance on how to build and support successful product design innovation in your business. Using insights gained from leading and working with dozens of product and design teams, Jeff will step through team makeup, process steps, management structure and the corporate infrastructure needed for these teams to flourish.

    Although Seth couldn't provide an answer to my question: "There are examples of companies like Semco who have been putting these practices into effect with demonstrable results at least as far back the 80's. Why then in 25+ years haven't we seen wider adoption?" a number of people did come up to me afterwards with suggestions. @sleepyfox reminded me of the Max Planck maxim: "New scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it." and this pattern will sound familiar to those who know the story of Ignaz Semmelweis.
    A number of movements have sprung up whose focus is the organisation psych they believe is holding us back; the following is a by-no-means complete list: The Management Innovation eXchange, Holacracy, The Stoos Network, WorldBlu, Beyond Budgeting, Radical Management and Unboss.

    There's a few people listed as attending who signed up to previous events and didn't show. This is a popular talk so if you aren't planning to attend could you please respect others and update your RSVP so someone on the waiting list can make it instead.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
