(The Keynote talk at PIPELINE Conference 2015, London – https://pipelineconf.info/2015-event/speakers/)
You have great ideas. You’re smart. The people in your organization are smart. Post Hoc, Ergo Propter Hoc — the rest is easy — simply make a transition plan and transparently explain the benefits. These and other organizational change myths will be tackled by Linda’s talk about patterns for introducing new ideas. She will provide some useful tips for helping you start on Monday morning to grow, step by step, any innovation.
