New Business of Paradigms, 2nd Edition
Run time: 21 Minutes
Paradigms can be useful tools. They help us navigate our day-to-day lives and make sense of the barrage of information that comes our way. For instance, in an organization, paradigms help leaders set goals based on past experience and an understanding of what is likely to happen in the future. But what happens when unexpected opportunities or unforeseen challenges arise? Can assumptions or perceptions shared by individuals within the organization prevent them from embracing a new paradigm or solving problems creatively?
The answer is yes. Paradigms can limit our ability to innovate and create if we don't look at the larger picture and ask questions. Through stories and examples Joel Barker
demonstrates how thinking differently is necessary for us to identify new ideas and opportunities. Challenging accepted paradigms requires detachment from prevailing wisdom, courage to challenge conventional thinking, and the skills to follow through with out-of-the-box thinking. From this, individuals help organizations establish new paradigms that lead to new products and processes that attain the goals they've set out to achieve.
Key Concepts Participants Will Learn:
- Paradigms are common
- Paradigms are useful
- Don't let your paradigm become the paradigm
