Nigel Paine: Links between innovation, knowledge sharing & corporate learning?

The answer in most companies is 'absolutely nothing'! Different functions reporting to different execs and are worlds apart in philosophy and approach. But it needn't be like that. The session will argue for some alternate models and suggest some benefits arising from that synergy.

• What is innovation and why is it important?
• Why KM goes hand in hand with innovation
• Why corporate learning has to evolve to leverage this relationship.
• How will it all work
• What are the first implementation steps you need to take?

Participating in this event will enable you to…

6:00-6:30 Networking with other thinking collaborators (over drinks and nibbles).
6:30-7:15 Nigel Paine on Innovation, KM and learning

    Hi folks,

    sorry I couldn't attend last evening - unanticipated work relating to the end of year that I had to jump on.

    Hope everyone has a nice Christmas.

    How are you placed at this stage for presenters in 2013?

    • Keith De La R.

      Luke - Not sure if anyone has responded to this elsewhere already. Are you offering to lead a session? I have passed your comment on to the rest of the coordinating group to see if we have any openings. We each usually host one session and arrange a speaker - there are a number of speakers on our list, but I imagine that there should be an opening to speak sometime if you are interested.

    Hi all, I thought it was a great presentation. Thanks to Nigel and for organising this.

    Question: does anyone have a reference/link/picture of that slide Nigel presented with McKinsey's top business priorities? I forgot to take a picture or write it down. I remember one item on that slide was about collaboration, an other about innovation etc.

    I found this presentation of immense interest both personally and because the situations he described were similar to what I have been experiencing at work. If only there were quick solutions to some of the issues he talked about. Trust does underpin alot of issues, but it takes time to restore.

    Some good reminders of how not to succeed in business. Great insights and thought-provoking especially the consideration of the peripheral people and getting the ripple effect happening. Most of the messages were spot on with my own experience of people's behaviours: the blockers, lack of trust, fear of sharing, fear of trying something new.
    Learning culture was much discussed. Is this something we get wrong right from the start in school: competition ahead of sharing, individual pursuits instead of working as a team, knowledge of the individual not the whole?

    Hi all, I am happy to host in Arthur's place while he is away.
