CoffeeCAST – #21 – A Discussion on Faster Change

Welcome to the 21st CoffeeCAST with Stephen Hayward
of Project X.  It has been a great week with some wonderful client conversations.  They got me thinking about Innovation, Rapid Results and Speed to Market and when I was talking with Michael Ianni-Palarchio (MIP from mipsscan) about them we decided to do a CoffeeCAST.

We discuss a number of things, but as a quick indicator here are some of the areas we cover:

  • Rapid Results – something you will see over and over at Project X
  • Some topics from MIP’s mid-week update
  • Innovation Value Networks / SWAT or Specialty Teams
  • Some companies and their approach: Google, Yahoo
  • Mindmapping tool called Mind Manager from Mindjet a product for capture of ideas (C-Map as an open source alternative and Casewise as something a little different again).

This was all about working to get business value to the business faster and tools and techniques.

    Interesting about this discussion about Rapid Results you both talked about “deliverables”. It may be just terminology but I suspect not. What Bob is talking about change and helping the organization change, not delivering something. He sees the project as a team effort as opposed someone delivering something to someone else. I think the concept is involving people in an improvement process rather delivering or “imposing” a solution on somebody.
    I believe this is a critical distinction.
