PWN Paris presents its flaghsip event in collaboration with the Fédération Française de Football on June 16th 2015
Join us Be Bold & Innovate
The world we live in today is in the midst of a deep mutation. It is a world that presents more and more complex challenges, which can instill fear, but which can also hold the keys to many opportunities. The realm of the possible is growing, as one can witness through the development of collaborative and participative economics, the evolving networks around us, the discovery of sustainable renewable energy sources, the use of 3D printing techniques...
In order to make the best out of this changing world and to use it as a source of success, it is absolutely necessary to learn how to overcome our barriers, to surpass our fears: be an actor of change, question the status quo, think outside the box...
Boldness and innovation allow us to break free from limitations and help us to translate new ideas and concepts into concrete actions.
The Best Of! 2015 will give you an exclusive and exciting opportunity to meet experts, explore new approaches in the fields of technological, entrepreneurial and social innovation and learn from best practices and real-life experiences.
Discover new ways to think and dare.
We are pleased to announce that Brigitte Henriques, ex-international French football player and Secretary General of the Fédération Française de Football, will be our guest of honor for this 9th edition of the Best Of!
Anne Landreat's insight:
Heureuse à l'idée de faciliter un workshop sous forme de World Café autour de la question de l'innovation dans le champs du "travailler ensemble" lors de la journée "Best Of!" du Professional Women's Network à Paris, une journée ouverte aux hommes comme aux femmes, mais organisée par un réseau de femmes. Et en plus, en partenariat avec la (très masculine) Fédération Française de Football !
Dans toute organisation – communauté ou entreprise – il y a des individus qui, grâce à leurs comportements différents et efficaces, préviennent ou résolvent des problèmes dits insolubles, alors qu’ils partagent les même contraintes que leur pairs. C’est sur ce constat que s’appuie la «positive deviance». Son objectif? Inviter toutes les parties prenantes à découvrir ces solutions comportementales adaptées à un contexte précis, qui sont à la fois immédiatement applicables et pérennes, puis à les diffuser.
VIDÉO - L'innovation testée dans les locaux du New York Times retranscrit les moments les plus importants d'une réunion et permet aux personnes absentes de réécouter ce qui a été dit pendant quatre semaines.
Comment animer, manager, former, contribuer en mode réel à plusieurs et de façon créative. Pour éviter la « réunionite », les conférences traditionnelles et ateliers formels avec orateurs ne donnant pas la parole à l’audience, pour refonder la formation… Pour rompre les habitudes, la Fondation Roi Baudouin ss une publication librement téléchargeable qui fait dans la différence :Méthodes participatives. Un guide pour l’utilisateur (204 pages, en pdf).
Ce guide pratique « boite à outils » présente 13 méthodes participatives éprouvées pour que les individus « jouent un rôle plus actif dans la gouvernance de leur société » ; pour des projets favorisant dans leur construction et élaboration un exercice démocratique, un recul critique.
It would be almost three hours until Tesla's big announcement, but inside a Northwestern University classroom near Chicago Thursday night, the famed nuclear critic Arnie Gundersen had the inside scoop: Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk was about to announce an industrial-scale battery, Gundersen said, that would cost about 2¢ per kilowatt hour to use, putting the final nail in the coffin of nuclear power.
Want to know what makes us stand apart from our ape cousins?
Cooperation—no other animal does it quite like us. Developmental psychologist Michael Tomasello explains why if chimps had a self-help bestseller, it would be titled, How to Outwit Rivals and Get More Fruit.
2 million years ago, as climate swings altered the availability and competition for food, our ancestors were forced to put their heads together to survive. (...)
Human cooperation requires two or more people to have insight into each other’s intentions, formulate a joint goal, assume specific roles, and then coordinate their efforts. (...)
Ultimately, Tomasello’s research on human nature arrives at a paradox: our minds are the product of competitive intelligence and cooperative wisdom, our behavior a blend of brotherly love and hostility toward out-groups. Confronted by this paradox, the ugly side—the fact that humans compete, fight, and kill each other in wars—dismays most people, Tomasello says. And he agrees that our tendency to distrust outsiders—lending itself to prejudice, violence, and hate—should not be discounted or underestimated. But he says he is optimistic. In the end, what stands out more is our exceptional capacity for generosity and mutual trust, those moments in which we act like no species that has ever come before us.
It is no secret that storytelling has become the pinnacle practice of 2015. So what can content marketers learn from some of the best stories going right now? Looking ahead to Friday and a new "House of Cards" release on Netflix, I began to think about the parallels between content marketing and traditional media (in this case television). In Kevin Spacey’s keynote from Content Marketing World 2014, he told a half hour story about the importance of storytelling...
Anne Landreat's insight:
Storytelling is one of the keys of organizational culture. Do you know what story is out there? No, not the official glossy corporate one. The one or the ones you here at the coffee machine or in the corridors... Because that will tell you how things get done hereand why. And that's exactly what culture is all about.
Big companies looking for innovation should create a culture of intrapreneurship. Let employees know it is OK to spend part of their days tinkering around with new ideas. Let them embrace that it is OK to make mistakes, and that failure will not be punished if things do not go as planned. Hire people that have entrepreneurship wired into their DNA and promote to leaders those who are not afraid to make decisions on their own and take risks. Most importantly, stop focusing on next quarter’s profits, and start focusing on the next decade’s worth of revenue growth.
I used to think corporate culture didn’t matter. Discussion of vision, mission and values was for people who couldn’t build product or sell it! We had work to do and this MBA BS was getting in the way!

« On peut en savoir plus sur quelqu'un en une heure de jeu qu'en une année de conversation. » Platon
« Le jeu est comme un engrais pour la croissance du cerveau. Il est fou de ne pas l’utiliser. » Stuart Brown
Nous avons testé ce fabuleux outil, parce qu’il brise les codes des réunions classiques et ouvre le dialogue des participants.
Dans la lignée des nouveaux modes de faire, cette méthode Open source est (depuis 2010) facile d’accès. Ces ateliers sont activateurs de changement, et font appel à l'intelligence collective. Décryptage de cette méthode et de ces utilisations.
Pfizer reduced costs 40% without cutting jobs at a facility in Sweden using an alternative approach to organisational and cultural behaviour, and hopes to do the same at its newly acquired Austrian plant.
What it means to be a corporate rebel. The interesting question is weather Pfizer will take this on board and deploy it, or, at least, deploy the principles at stake here, or reject the whole experience (and fire the guy).
And that's the reason why I am not working on so called "change resistance". Because the resistance nor the change are the problems. And trying to overcome resistance is exhausting and generally unfruitful, if not dangerous.
Working on all the things that might influence people to desire the change for themselves is way more interesting and rewarding.
Simply being first with new products does not guarantee success. You need to be innovative in the way you run your business. You need to be prepared to fundamentally change your mode of operation. In so doing, you can hope to create new competitive advantages. Ultimately, it’s about being better and different, not just first.
Anne Landreat's insight:
Maybe big consultancy firms (like the BCG) should apply theses principles to themselves first. As they are the ones who have the power to influence business, not just by developing nice (and true) theories, but by role modeling, by walking the talk.
Airbnb Co-founder Joe Gebbia talks about the true meaning of being scrappy and being willing to do things that don't scale.
Anne Landreat's insight:
The question at stake here is, also, how questionning and challenging the dominant culture (here, the valley culture to "make things that scale"), even when you are a small startup, can be crucial.
No, startups don't appear from nowhere, creating their own brand new culture. They operate in an environment in which they intend to perform and which has, like any human formal or non formal organization, non written rules, habits, assumptions, dogmas, values, beliefs and "ways to do things here"... i.e. a dominant culture. And if they want to be disruptive, they will have to disrupt that first.
Join our joint conference April 28-30 in Berlin: over the course of three days, we will discover the intersection of Strategic Enterprise Design, Design Thinking, and Design Management. We will explore how to Design to Align the fields involved to add value across the enterprise.
Anne Landreat's insight:
Thrilled to announce that, jointly with Mark Adams, VP @toyota_europe, we will talk about the exciting culture transformation project we are co-leading and facilitating for Toyota's european headquaters and technical center in Brussels. And how, together with Milan Guenther from @eda_c and Nicolas Enjalbert, we are designing for engagement, influence and, ultimately, employee and manager experience and how this led us to overcome the "big scary gap". More in Berlin next week!
En 1945, Christian Dior est invité par Marcel Boussac, le « roi du coton », à lui soumettre un projet de développement pour son groupe. Dans son autobiographie publiée en 1956, il révèle ses doutes de l’époque, et notamment sa peur des « intrigues politiques », de la résistance des gens « déjà là depuis des années »…
Nous sommes au coeur du dilemme intrapreneurial : le porteur de renouveau n’est pas devant une page blanche comme un entrepreneur, il s’inscrit dans une espace organisationnel déjà configuré, avec des baronnies, et une forte compétition pour des ressources par définition limitées (temps, argent, compétences, attention). Bref de nombreux problèmes internes à résoudre en perspective…
Qu’est ce qui va convaincre Christian Dior de franchir le pas ?
