Many organizations prefer not to share the details or the frequency of their failed innovation initiatives. Only after sifting through disparate research we are able to piece together a sense of how frequently failure is the outcome and what we should really expect from an innovation success rate. When we realize that failure is a much more common outcome we also recognize that planning for only success can become an organization’s Achilles’ heel. In this scenario failure has dire consequences to both the individual and the organization. By addressing these facts upfront we can learn to better deal with the underlying risks and fear that surround innovation failure. This session will review the data behind innovation failure, examine how risk / fear impact the individual, and discuss a few tools and techniques that organizations and individuals can use to address these challenges.

How do project teams overcome differences to adopt a design plan that strikes a balance between short-term affordability and long-term adaptability? Hear how a formal framework for design flexibility on the front end encourages greater communication among project team members, helps avoid risks and reduce costs, and improves efficiency.

Project learning is a vital prerequisite for innovation as it directly contributes to project and organizational capability development. As more organizations become project-based, there is an emergent need to understand how these organizations can overcome challenges of disruptive learning cycles caused by project temporality and employee mobility. Project learning occurs on the individual, team, and organizational level. Individual learning happens through intuiting and interpreting, learning by doing, experiencing using metaphors and cognitive maps. Team learning occurs through the integration of individual learnings, which result in shared understanding and mutual adjustment of mental models.
