Ash St. Speech

Fail – to innovate

We all want to be seen as innovative in the procurement profession, but how do we become innovative? This session introduces a contemporary model on how to think about the facets of innovation in work and how to trick the brain into starting that innovation journey. The material draws upon David’s behavioural science training and the last six years working at the forefront of cognitive science research and application into disrupting mental models of work. This method invokes a safe way to fail to allow innovation and an accelerated iteration of new approaches virtual reality worlds.

In this session you will learn about:

  • The Innovation Radar
  • Why you can’t innovate by will and the importance of failure
  • What happens in the brain during innovation
  • How you can trick the brain to change its way of thinking
