Continuous improvement through innovation and learning

Keynote and workshop based on the book Learning Ecosystems, finalist best international business books

More detailed information

In these times of ever-faster innovation, the impact on us as people, as employees, and in our organisations is often overwhelming.  A positive mindset towards learning is therefore the best way not to be left behind, and more so, to help shape the uncertain future itself.  In this often provocative keynote, we look at a future that has already caught up with us and draw inspiration from innovations that support learning and growth.  For this, we look at the concept of learning ecosystems where learning is supported by all stakeholders to support growth as individuals and as organisations and, by extension, society.  A roadmap for continuous improvement through learning is the result there.

Based on the book Leaning Ecosystems, this talk is ideally suited for executives who want to commit to continuous improvement through innovation and a learning culture with engaged employees. An adapted form is also very interesting as an inspirational talk for employees to help shape an agile strategy in which their competences help shape the learning organisation.

This keynote 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 come up with implementable innovations (processes and technology) that support the future of work and put the organisation on a path of continuous improvement
