Lean Impact: Navigate Uncertainty using Proven Innovation Techniques

Presenter: Ann Mei Chang

Time: 2:00pm

Cost: Free - exclusively for charity leaders and trustees

About this webinar: In this time of upheaval and disruption, many nonprofits are turning to the best practices for innovation, as they were designed for just that - working under conditions of extreme uncertainty. Given we still have no idea all the ways the pandemic and ensuing effects will reshape our world, building a nimble organization is going to be more important than having the “perfect” solution.

The most successful nonprofits will be able to pivot quickly and step into emerging opportunities for transformation in ways that are responsive to both evolving societal needs and take advantage of opportunities such as the upsides of virtual interactions. To do so, they will need to deeply engage both clients and stakeholders to understand their new realities, be willing to let go of long-held approaches that are no longer appropriate, and run experiments targeted at accelerating learning about the most critical risks/opportunities when stepping into the unknown.

About this webinar: Organisational Resilience is the product of having the right mindset, structures and capabilities across three key aspects: strategic, operational and cultural resilience. Resilience is not only about bouncing back, but managing the unexpected and preparing and adapting to challenges and disruptions to survive, prosper and be future ready.

  • How to build resilience into future strategy and decision-making; and
  • Developing organisational capability not just to survive, but thrive.
