Great insights from my discussion today with Austin R. Bryan, #CLP and Fred Ngan #Bowtie in the #HKGCC forum on “Thriving in a Post-Covid Era Thru Innovation”. Thanks Victor Lam, Chairman of the Industry & Technology Committee of HKGCC, to host us & moderate the panel discussion. Austin & Fred were on Zoom and Victor & I were in HKGCC.
My key takeaways are:
1. Living with #Ambiguity becomes a new normal. We need to keep innovating in an uncomfortable environment.
2. Sense of #Urgency & lean startup thinking are crucial for innovation but most corporates do not have that.
3. Forget about innovation if we don’t have a clear #StrategicIntent. It could be for customer experience, market share or others.
6. #Diversity of teammates with no domain experience is critical as it will bring out blind spots that are unseen by industry experts.
