Unlocking Internal Innovation

Presenter: Kaihan Krippendorff, CEO of Outthinker, author, speaker, Wharton Executive Education


When a business faces new obstacles, the management invariably turns to one of two approaches: option-narrowing and rule-following. They either apply logic to define and narrow down a seemingly complete set of options or they follow a formula of behaviors that have proven successful in the past. However, both approaches are ineffective at delivering truly innovative strategies.

To bring innovation to business strategy, individuals need to learn from innovative thinkers in other competitive domains, such as chess, athletics, and military combat. Kaihan’s decade-long research into the underlying patterns of competitiveness shows that truly creative strategists abandon logical approaches, and instead use time-tested patterns to seize growth strategies others ignore.

In this session, Kaihan presents his proprietary approach to discovering and seizing hidden strategic opportunities. He will expand attendees’ repertoires of strategic patterns which will enable them to see new tactical options in an ever-changing economic environment. He will show how companies can embed deep and powerful strategic narratives within their people, and thereby grow faster, increase profitability, sustain their competitive advantage, and capitalize on strategic investments.

What Will You Learn

Webinar participants will come to understand why patterns are critical for resolving business challenges. Attendees will learn a systematic approach and a set of tools to consistently identify and seize strategic opportunities others overlook. Kaihan will teach participants the most common strategies that successful companies employ, the best strategic narratives that help people develop innovative solutions, and how using narratives can teach employees to think differently.
This webinar will cover:
•How successful companies innovate beyond products, to pricing, sourcing, people, and processes.
•The role of pattern-recognition in business innovation.
•Develop the skills needed to design a successful company playbook.
•Application of the best strategic patterns that reveal unorthodox solutions.
•How to embed these strategic patterns so that individuals can intuitively apply their approaches to solve challenges.
