Conversation starter: Linsay Cunningham
Linsay asked: if we want to create change and put our big ideas into action, what’s the first step?
Over-planning isn’t always helpful. Planning can be the death of innovation! But some sort of loose plan is required to get our ideas off the ground.
When you have lots of ideas, how do you prioritise? Could we create an innovation strategy to help us decide which to act upon?
We agreed that the first step is to develop a brave vision, then get people to buy into it. Leaders can be risk averse and reluctant to step into the unknown. Are there any ways we could allay their fears? What if we could create a litigation fund to cover risk?
