Webinar Overview

Large-scale systemic innovation is incredibly difficult. In order to create the kind of disruptive innovation that changes not just products but also whole markets and industries, teams of workers must collaborate and innovate together, which is a huge challenge inside most organizations.

Audacious innovation is precisely the focus of Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson. Her recent work explores large-scale, systemic innovation that calls for “big teaming”: intense collaboration between professions and industries with completely different mindsets. This demands that leadership combines an expansive vision with deliberative incremental action. 

Edmondson has researched the key practices of more than one dozen successful large-scale, cross-industry innovation projects—like Living PlanIT and Lake Nona Institute—to identify key practices that guided them and powerful lessons for those seeking to drive change in any industry.

On September 29, in a live, interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Edmondson will share insights and findings from her research regarding the new types of teaming and leadership required from complex, audacious projects.

If you and your organization have extremely ambitious goals and will be undertaking massive, complex, large-scale, cross-industry initiatives, you want to hear what Prof. Edmondson has learned about overcoming the challenges and building the future. Join Amy Edmondson and HBR on September 29.
