About the session

2020 delivered some of the most extreme conditions of change that we have ever experienced in our lifetimes. While this may feel like an anomaly, it’s clear we are now living in a world with more complexity, uncertainty, and volatility – which is requiring us all to respond to change faster than ever before.

During this session we will explore how Innovation leaders can accelerate change (and adaptability) in times of uncertainty. You will walk away with:
• A model for understanding and navigating uncertainty
• Strategies for implementing the science of change
• An understanding of your role in leading through this context
