From awareness to adapt, act, and achieve
Like the family pet running wild through your child’s lego creation, Corna Virus turned our world upside down. Unlike ever before, the Corona Virus Pandemic has shed light on the importance of innovation. Numerous agencies from the federal to local levels are working tirelessly to innovate, adapt, and act quickly to achieve a solution to the crisis. In addition to bringing to light problems in healthcare, supply chain dependencies, dangers in global travel, it has also magnified the challenge of managing teams in uncertain times. But let’s face it, times are always unpredictable. Leaders had just become complacent in their methods of managing. As a result of the virus, leaders can no longer be complacent. It’s imperative they stop the domino’s that continue to fall in order to survive this unprecedented time.
Adapt, act, and achieve in uncertain times
The process responsible for product innovation for the last several decades is design thinking. The most successful companies of our time used design thinking to adapt, act, and achieve in uncertainty. Historically, design thinking focused on improving products/services to drive future performance. However, as noted in the Harvard Business Review article, Design Thinking is Coming of Age. It’s no longer only focused on product/service innovation. It’s about innovating the way people work.
While innovating the way people work b.c. (before Corona) may have been a – nice to think about, on the back burner, let’s tackle that after this priority, kind of issue – it’s now the center of attention. What once was a nice to do someday is now a must-do asap. To remain relevant, leaders must adapt, act, and achieve. Regardless of the uncertainty, leaders must meet KPI targets, create an engaging culture, execute the latest change initiative. In summary, they must become innovative leaders, once thought to be reserved for Amazon, Apple, and Google’s of the world. Is this possible?
