Rapid Redesign Of University Process With The NESTT Workshop
The digital economy has shifted the focus from reactively streamlining processes (economy of corporations) to empowering users (economy of people) and proactively capitalising on new technologies. However, current process improvement approaches do not provide the support required in such an opportunity-rich environment. The rapid redesign approach NESTT has been developed to integrate the requirement for more efficiency with the demand to truly transform business processes.
This highly interactive workshop will provide the audience with hands-on experiences across all four stages of the NESTT. A specific focus will be on the utilisation of the NESTT room, the people-centred view of the NESTT and the ideation methods within the NESTT. Numerous cases will provide insights into the practical deployment and how to address emerging challenges.
Leading The Ambidextrous University
The opportunity-rich environment of the digital economy and its connected stakeholders, requires leaders who can successfully explore new pathways while responding to the ongoing demand to exploit further efficiency gains. Ambidextrous leaders, however, often do not have access to the approaches needed when addressing the need for revenue resilience and a shorter innovation latency.
This presentation will introduce the notions of revenue resilience and purpose-led innovation to motivate transformational initiatives. A series of thinking patterns will be discussed to provide guidance in the search for new ways to secure existing or to create new revenue streams in the digital age. National and international case studies will exemplify emerging threats and opportunities as well as the secrets of resilient and innovative organisations.
