    [Keynote] Changing work to change the world

    In Silicon Valley and more generally in the United States, companies normally mention that they want to change the world during the presentation of the project. They boast that their project contributes greatly to this change. Well, some people will say that this is a form of Storytelling in order to give it a commercial approach. Perhaps, but these companies combine a societal mission and an entrepreneurial project in their presentations. So why deprive themselves of it! André Citroën, whose centenary brand we are proudly be celebrating this year, would he not have wanted to change the world by widening access to the automobile? Would the company become a major place for changing the world? Sometimes companies are perceived, in an antagonistic way, as a place of exploitation and profit. Isn’t the contemporary company mutating towards a societal object as mentioned by the works of Frédéric Laloux? The growing societal expression of the desire for participation, the complexity of competitive and regulatory environments and the need to rethink our production and consumption patterns in an environmentally conscious way, are all constraints and opportunities to rethink work and the organisational forms that make it possible. There is a contradiction between the increasingly procedural and constraining systems in response to complexity of environments and ordinary innovation requirements (at all levels of the organisation) for differentiation and optimization challenges. This leads to a managerial crisis that sociologist François Dupuy called “lost in management”. In order to find solutions, many organisations develop managerial innovations to give people more room for manoeuvre and to develop their capacity for collective achievement. The command/control model and the resulting functional-hierarchic structural organisations shift under the impetus of the collaborative and innovation requirements. This change cannot take the direct cutover approach by discarding the notions of supervision and the associated responsibilities. This change, which has already begun, is taking place in work and its organisation. This emergence has different names such as the future of work or managerial innovation. This involves renewing management practices, ways of working and the content of the work itself. Slasheurs (people with several jobs), start-ups, freelancers, holacratic or sociocratic organisations (power sharing and empowerment at local level), etc. are all expressions of this future of work. This raises questions of governance, responsibility, performance and mission that companies must integrate into their operations and organisation. Even if this can sometimes take the form of ineffective fashion effects, the movement is part of management in the form of managerial innovations.

    [Keynote] Adapt to the innovation economy

    Shifting up the Innovation Funnel​ ​(for businesses that want to change and innovate faster): Starting new teams and scaling up innovation is more important than ever. The key to success is applying different practices in different stages of the innovation lifecycle. What works for a new business does not work for a mature one, and vice versa. In this talk, we will nosedive into the major good practices for business leaders and product teams, from the moment they have an innovative idea to the day they will scale it up (or screw it up). Everything depends on the lifecycle stage of the new product or service. Topics can include (depending on available time): ​Business Lifecycle, Shiftup Model, Problem/Solution Fit, Product/Market Fit, Lean Personas, Jobs To Be Done, Value Proposition Wheel, Pains and Gains, Lean Experiments, Minimum Viable Product, Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas, Innovation Cycle, North Star Metric, Product Roadmaps, Customer Journey Maps, Business Funnel, Pirate Metrics, Growth Hacking, Growth Board, Innovation Funnel. About the book My new book ​Startup, Scaleup, Screwup​ will be about the European startup/scaleup scene. I have interviewed dozens of people at Spotify, Zalando, Booking, Typeform, TransferWise, Flixbus, iZettle, and many other inspiring companies. Businesses all over the world want more innovation, with happier workers, and at a faster pace. It is time for them to learn how European startups are agile and lean, and how they scale up their businesses. Author: Jurgen Appelo Publisher: John Wiley & Sons, USA (hardcover, 300 pages) Expected release date: April 23, 2019 (North America) About me I am the CEO of a startup and quite familiar with all the latest trends. I was once Entrepreneur of the Year in The Netherlands. I just completed EUR 1M of investments for my new company Agility Scales. I have two other businesses, both of which are profitable. I am Europe’s nr 1 Leadership Author (see ​ranking on Inc.com​). As a public speaker, I travel around Europe all the time. My list of clients includes the largest and best-known European companies.
