The motto of this 2-day workshop was “moving from Me to We culture” to encourage greater team effectiveness through the original technique of the Rube Goldberg machine building. Together with our workshop ideator Jamshid Alamuti, we had the pleasure to host the international consultant Jacopo Nicelli and the Lecturer and Co-founder of Stamplay Nicola Mattina as coaches, working closely with our participants.
The terms innovation and transformation are in everybody’s vocabulary by now, especially when it comes to establishing oneself successfully in the market. A closely linked keyword that usually comes to people’s mind is change. In fact, change is an enabler of innovation. However, often it seems that we are afraid of change or giving up the old ways, even if the fear lies more in the uncertain process in between.
To empower the participants to accept change and make the most out of it, our trainers encouraged them to, step by step, generate small changes to obtain a greater result. We should not be scared of breaking old habits but rather substitute those with new motivational triggers to open new doors of functionality and keep up with competitors.
“We can motivate our teams to break the patterns with tangible examples. We need role models within each team to drive and inspire change.” - Jacopo Nicelli
Nicelli introduced the concept of “Speedagility” which outlines today’s demand perfectly on point. “The combination of speed and agility gives us the opportunity to standardize processes which in turn create spare time to focus on the implementation of changes and innovations.” During the entire process, it is essential to define a clear vision of the desired state.
For instance, change occurs when old products or services are replaced with innovative alternatives. Even though customer needs remain the same it changes the way to satisfy those needs. “Therefore, it is necessary to ensure the tangibility of products and services through new technologies” outlines Mattina in his presentation.
"There is always room for new ideas in the market. People change the way they satisfy their needs, so we have to change the way to meet their expectations." - Nicola Mattina
