Topic Synopsis

CEO Perspectives on Innovation

What does a CEO mean when they say they want to innovate? This presentation reports on world first research that provides a direct comparison between styles of innovation in the private and public sectors. Twenty-five private sector CEOs and 18 Commonwealth Departmental Secretaries were interviewed. The presentation involves different stories of public and private sector innovation to illustrate the difference between the two contexts and the factors that lead to success.

CEO Perspectives on Organisational Resilience

This presentation reports on the results of research with 51 CEOs from both private and public sector organisations (including three of the top 10 ASX listed organisations in Australia), on the factors that drive organisational resilience. The most important of these is trust. The presentation involves stories from the Gulf war and the massacre in Norway to take the audience on a journey that powerfully illustrates the ways in which trust is created and destroyed in modern organisations.

Decision Making for Growth

Why is it so difficult for decision-making groups to pursue growth opportunities and innovate? This presentation takes the audience on a journey through sociology, psychology and neuroscience to explain why groups struggle to pursue new opportunities and how they can overcome these challenges.

Supporting material

All presentations involve the use of innovative video production to support the story telling and illustration of research outcomes.
