The Quest For Innovation

The 2014 Innovation Series- Dubai

The Academia Of Excellence & Group Partners welcome you to an innovative and impactful event.

As leaders in the field of Innovation we are proud to be able to share our Global experience with you.

Join us and witness, in a creative and visual way, some of the most important innovation lessons; ideas we've learned from over 2000 boardrooms. Critical insights from leaders in the biggest and most interesting businesses and Government Agencies all around the world.

Discuss the tools and techniques that we've developed over the last 15 years as a result - understand how these leaders have deployed innovative, structured and visual thinking in every situation, challenge and opportunity.

We will demonstrate the power of these tools directly and share some of the detail behind the  methods and the applications that the 21st Century Leader and the Resilient enterprise needs to win.

We Believe & Promote The Idea
Of The Resilient Leader & The Resilient Enterprise.

This means an innovative enterprise where the workforce are 100% behind the Leadership, its core purpose, vision and the entire mission of the business.

An enterprise that is free from artificial constraints, is able to adapt with the times and feels at ease with complexity. An enterprise that doesn’t feel the need to place everything within well defined ‘containers’ that restrict thinking and is always alive to the realities. The leaders have their hands on the pulse of the organisation.

As a leader you want a flexible and adaptive organisation

One that is able to make the best use of its most critical assets - then that organisation needs to be actively engaged in shaping the way they will play their part - equipped to participate in the best way possible.

As a leader you want to stay ahead of the curve

And react quickly when trend change and when new opportunities or challenges arise - then you need to be closely in tune with the dynamic context surrounding and influencing your world, That means positively embracing the complexity and encouraging genuine curiosity

As a leader you want to make the best possible decisions

And get inside the dynamics of your business and the perspectives of your stakeholders - then you need to invest in 'platforms'* that can provide meaningful information and open up your insights to those who need it to do their job.

*Platforms are more than just technologies, they are ways of working in agreed ways and tools and techniques that enable the sharing of value

As a leader you want to create seamless work and customer experiences

And to design the very best models, products and services - then you need to understand how value flows within the organisation and who contributes to it.

As a leader you want the enterprise to be with you every step of the way

Then you need to engage them in the most authentic way possible by sharing your ambitions and purpose and making it meaningful - so that the passion and commitment can be felt throughout the organisation and everyone is united around a common purpose

That is our high level
