Building more human organisations

Large organisations often find it difficult to innovate. This may be less about strategy and processes and more about organisation culture. Many great academics have written around this topic. Some of the best work in this space was done by the late Sumantra Ghoshal in the 1990s and in more recent times, Julian Birkinshaw. I want to share two videos which articulate why and how large organisations can transition to more human cultures that encourage initiative and creativity.

Sumantra Ghoshal on why companies should create an environment of trust, support and self-discipline – 8 min video here.

Julian Birkinshaw on how large companies can transition to cultures that encourage experimentation – 16 min video here.

More on Sumantra Ghoshal here. More on Julian Birkinshaw here.
