Continuous improvement through innovation and learning ecosystems
In these times of increasingly rapid innovation, the impact on us as people, as employees and for our organisations is often overwhelming. A positive mindset towards innovation and learning is therefore the best way not to be left behind, and more so, to help shape the uncertain future ourselves. In this often provocative and very inspiring keynote, we look at a future that often seems to have caught up with us. In doing so, we draw inspiration from innovations that support learning and growth, as well as from children who embody the future of work.
Based on the book Leaning Ecosystems, finalist best international business book at the business book awards, this lecture is ideally suited for executives who want to work on a future-oriented continuous improvement strategy. An adapted format is also very interesting as an inspirational talk for employees. Here, the objective is to transform the fear they often experience regarding the uncertain future into a growth mindset, enabling them to help shape the learning organisation from their own competences.
This keynote, which is always tailored to the target audience, can also be extended with a workshop for CEO/COO/CXOs or Senior Executives/Leaders in Innovation, HR and L&D. The aim of this workshop is to arrive at implementable innovations (processes and technology) that support the future of work and set the organisation on a path of continuous improvement.
Has the future caught up with us
In these times of ever-faster innovation, the impact on us as human beings and on the future of work is often overwhelming. In this often provocative keynote, Katja Schipperheijn looks at the future that already seems to have caught up with us. Often inspired by the more than 15,000 children she had in her workshops, she brings innovations like ChatGPT, but also hyperreal alternative worlds, in which we can live, work and learn. In the learning ecosystems she outlines, she combines technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality, video and 3D holographic avatars with NFTs and blockchain. Bringing these new digital innovations together creates unprecedented combinations that offer possibilities beyond our imagination. Will we all soon enter this new world with the MetaHuman creator, digital contact lenses or even brain implants?
Based on the book Learning Ecosystems, finalist best international business book, this keynote is ideally suited to executives who want to create the future themselves through continuous improvement, innovation and a learning culture with engaged employees.
