OXFORDPROSPECT - Gurteen Knowledge Letter July 2014

OXFORDPROSPECT - Gurteen Knowledge Letter July 2014 | Oxford Leadership | Scoop.it
I did not know 15 years or so ago when I started to travel the world with my work that I would make so many wonderful friends and learn so much about other cultures and religions. Least of all to find myself a beautiful Indonesian wife. During my travels, the most important thing I have learnt is that despite our different languages, cultures and religions, we all have similar fears, insecurities, hopes and aspirations. It's what it means to be human and I have learnt to respect all people.

Useable Innovation Insights

Useable Innovation Insights | Oxford Leadership | Scoop.it

Useable Innovation Insights captures powerful lessons from innovators to help entrepreneurs and innovation practitioners identify and apply practical lessons from real-world experiences.

This minor initiative is based on utilising the power of storytelling, and Victor Newman’s experiences as an interviewee and later content designer in the 50 Lessons leadership interview exercise conducted in 2005-6, and featured in the Harvard Business Review.

Nicholas Newman's curator insight, March 9, 2013 2:49 AM
Key Difference

The key differences in this minor experimental exercise are:

Subjects interviewed are individuals who have actual, tactical experience of innovating either within organisations or as individual entrepreneurs, and not C-level managers or functional heads of department.Subjects are chosen from a wide innovation spectrum ranging from social enterprise, small to micro-business and multinational corporates.Interviews are highly-structured to identify key points, with a clear focus on and what the audience needs to pay attention to in order to apply a similar approach.Lessons are personal, have some transferability to different contexts and try not to be too simplistic.

OXFORDPROSPECT - Research Handbook On International Energy Law

OXFORDPROSPECT - Research Handbook On International Energy Law | Oxford Leadership | Scoop.it
International energy law is an elusive but important concept. There is no body of law called ‘international energy law’, nor is there any universally accepted definition for it, yet many specialised areas of international law have a direct relationship with energy policy. The Research Handbook on International Energy Law examines various aspects of international energy law and offers a comprehensive account of its basic concepts and processes.
Nicholas Newman's insight:

A very useful book on Energy Law!

Agile Innovation Leadership for Entrepreneurs | Global Entrepreneurship Week

Agile Innovation Leadership for Entrepreneurs | Global Entrepreneurship Week | Oxford Leadership | Scoop.it

In this workshop, Professor Victor Newman will introduce some simple and powerful tools for helping businesses innovate. Innovation is about thinking in new ways to do new things and learning how to do old things in new ways to create new value. Innovation involves giving yourself permission to think differently, both in and outside the box, to develop new rules that change the nature of the game of business itself.

If you don’t understand the psychology of innovation leadership, then your approach to innovation in your business or work is like driving your car with your eyes closed: it can be done, but the results tend to be messy, and you’ll never know what you are missing.

Are you a Creator, Translator, Stabilisor or a Navigator? Through his work with CEOs and innovating organizations, Professor Victor Newman has identified the 4 key Innovation Leadership Behaviours that leaders must learn to manage to deliver successful innovation.

Content: Experiencing Innovation Freedom. Looking in the leadership mirror: Innovation Leadership Behaviours and their impact on growing your business. Innovation Focusing (how and where to apply your innovation thinking). Understanding the power of Zombie Behaviours. Commitment to action.

Learning Outcomes: Ability to apply Innovation Freedom thinking to current situations. Understand what your personal Snapshot Profile Innovation Leadership (SPIL) is telling you in terms of actual and preferred Innovation Leadership Behaviours. How to Identify innovation opportunities. Ability to self-audit personal behaviours and attitudes.

Who should attend* Target audience – Leaders committed to growing their businesses, or individuals tasked specifically with leading an innovation project or initiative.

Benefits to you and your business* Take off the blinkers: understand your current (hidden) approach to leading innovation Listen to your inner leader: work with your intuition to identify preferences, and work on your contradictions. Identify the gap: work out who is missing from your business, and what is worth changing about the way you lead. Commit to action: working on what is changeable and how to make it happen. Learn from each other: meet others who care about becoming great leaders. Build a relationship with the University of Greenwich which could lead to other opportunities. Stimulate new ideas and develop different perspectives. Have an enjoyable learning day, acquiring ideas to take back to your business.

Comments from past attendees:  “Great, robust content. Practical session. Highly credible” (Simon Lester, Academy for Chief Executives) "A fascinating insight into creative types. Executive Foundation members used it to understand the roles their board members played - it was prescient, practical and productive." (Mike Wilsher, Executive Foundation)

Your Facilitator Professor Victor Newman is an Industrial Fellow at the Centre for Innovation, Imagination & Inspiration: the Business School, The University of Greenwich; Mentor to the Social Innovation Lab, Kent (SILK), Director of Innovation to Mind Fit Ltd, Co-Director of Innovoflow, Chief Innovation Officer at the Milamber Group, and Innovation Adviser to Erisa. Former roles include Head of Innovation Strategy & Economics at The Technology Strategy Board, and Chief Learning Officer to Pfizer’s Global R&D operation. He is a Visiting Fellow and Professor to several universities on the subject of Strategic Knowledge Management leadership and Innovation. Victor has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, contributed to the Harvard Business Review, and is on the Advisory Board for several organisations. He is the author of “Made to Measure Problem Solving” and his “Knowledge Activist’s Handbook” from Capstone/ Wiley & Sons has been cited as the “best management book within the last ten years”.  His most recent innovation books are available at blurb.co.uk.

Your suggestions for web and marketing? You cannot lead innovation effectively if you don’t understand yourself. This workshop will give you valuable insights into yourself, how different innovation leadership behaviours work together, the ability to become more effective and identify just who is missing in your innovation team.http://www.gew.org.uk/events/agile_innovation_leadership_for_entrepreneurs
