ROI: Moving beyond return on investment and innovation to inspiration

Link visible for attendees

When we assess ROI during transformations we need to not only consider return on investments or return on innovations, we need to also look at the return on inspirations.

A missing ingredient with many digital transformations is deep inspiration. Not just the “spark of idea” or “light bulb moment” but rather “make it all worthwhile” and “go beyond” inspirations.
Inspiration is part of our daily lives and can come at any time often when we most need it to help us through the tough times that we face during large scale technology and business transformation.

Yet inspiration is often seen as an ambiguous thing with no direct connection to a transformation. This is a lost opportunity.

Successful digital transformations need to connect deeply with the inspirations of our project teams, our key stakeholders and our organisation’s customer.

As leaders we need to better understand and continuously improve our return on inspiration and can start by asking three important questions:

  • What are our team’s daily inspiration drivers?
  • How do we create an environment to help inspire?
  • Where does our own personal inspiration fit in?

This expert talk will highlight and open discussions on these three questions including suggested areas of focus for greatest impact. While there is no silver bullet or playbook there are lessons and approaches to be shared.
