DISRUPTING THE STATUS QUO WITH UPSIDE-DOWN THINKING

November 22, 2017
8:50 am  -  9:10 am

Are you trying to collaborate with other agencies, businesses, and/or governments around complex issues and challenges, but feeling stuck or frustrated by the lack of traction, how long things are taking, or resistance to collaborating to the extent that you know is needed? Taking new ideas into reality requires not just more thinking, but thinking differently about how to be the disruptive force that can unseat the status quo.

In his talk, Mark will demonstrate how to engage in disruptive innovation, turn norms upside down in the pursuit of new or better ideas and actions, and give some examples of Upside-Down Thinking in practice.
