The major focus on maximising short-term financial performance will prove to be inadequate. While financial performance is important to create opportunities and to fuel innovation, there is an issue with this view on business where real socio-economic value add or true value creation for society, and impacts on society and the environment are not being taken into the equation. At Valexion, and in our partner network, we believe that this is no longer sustainable. We believe that it’s time for an important paradigm shift in how businesses set their targets and strategic objectives and take their impacts on society, environment and infrastructures into account in the measurement of their overall performance. Not as ‘window dressing’ or ‘green washing’ with an ESG marketing program, but as authentically purpose-driven organisations. What is the purpose of your company? Why does your company exist? What value is your company creating for society in a sustainable way?
How do you sustain innovation? Often bureaucracy pushes against innovation, and mavericks are pushed out of the organisation. Emerging exponential technologies – like AI, IoT, Blockchain, AR/VR, CRISPR-Cas9, nano-tech, micro-manufacturing, 3D printing, etc. – are creating tremendous opportunities for innovation. And there are many excellent innovators out there; everyone wants to be an innovator. But the real gap is with innovation leaders. Not many people know how to lead innovation. What does it take to be an innovation leader in the digital age? How to get maximal return out of independent mavericks without frustrating them? How do you create a culture that is conducive to flow and creativity? Valexion can help you in innovating your innovation management.
