Digital transformation requires industries and leaders to churn out innovations at a fast pace in response to the fast changing user requirements. This is going to require a whole new way of engaging and leading. In this talk, I explore some of the fundamental shifts in our thinking, engagements, and processes that are necessary in order to create this shift. Beyond technical knowledge, creative leadership is crucial to execute at the speed required to stay ahead. What is creative leadership in this context? What are some of the things we should unlearn, learn and relearn to unleash the potential of our teams, organisations and leadership in the public sector space? The alchemy of innovation consists of simple, human principles that when applied create the culture that breeds innovation.
