Back2Better Webinar: Leading Innovation: Asking the Right Questions at the Right Time with Tendayi Viki

When faced with uncertainty, leaders cannot come up with the best solutions by themselves. They need to work with their teams. The Covid 19 pandemic is forcing leaders to face the limitations of a command and control style of management. The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technologies and different ways of working. It has also brought sharply into focus the need for companies to have world-class innovation capabilities.

Leaders that fail to create the right context for breakthrough ideas to emerge from their teams will find themselves and their companies lagging behind.

Join us as Dr. Tendayi Viki, Associate Partner at Strategyzer, examines how leaders can drive innovation by asking the right questions at the right time.  He will discuss:

  • the type of leadership support that is needed for innovation flourish
  • how leaders can inspire breakthrough innovations by asking trigger questions
  • how leaders can use creative inquiry to find the ideas that are likely to succeed

Tendayi Viki is an Associate Partner at Strategyzer where he helps large organizations innovate for the future while managing their core business. He has written three books based on his research and consulting experience, Pirates in The Navy, The Corporate Startup and The Lean Product Lifecycle.
