Building 2020 WorkPlace Skills

SKMBT_C36014012211000

We were delighted to see the sythesized 2020 Workplace Engagement Model inside this useful book by Jeanne C. Meister and Karie Willyerd entitled The 2020 Workplace / How Innovative Companies Attract, Develop and Keep Tomorrow’s Employees Today.

We would recomend this book to our Humantific readers, many of whom are organizational leaders working on building next generation innovation capacity.

Anything related to envisioning tomorrow is useful in the context of imagining future organizational change and many organizations digest large quantities of such insights as part of their everyday sensemaking, some more formally than others.

We consistently see Collaboration, Authenticity and Innovation playing important roles in many future workplace visions.

Many organizational leaders are not waiting around for all the confirming statistics to be in, but rather are actively working on building this 2020 capacity NOW!

“The 2020 Workplace Engagement Model

Collaboration: This calls for interwoven work, internally & externally.

Authenticity: Core values and transparency demonstrate genuineness

Personification: Employees want tailor-made career paths.

Innovation: In a changing world, new thinking enables sustainability.

Social Connection: No one is an island. The future workplace will be based on sharing and forming a community.”

Envisioning Futures Program

DSC03148DSC03088

Working in collaboration with a leading global financial services corporation based in San Francisco, Humantific has created a repeatable Future Envisioning CoCreation Workshop that is being rolled out to hundreds of employees in the next 12 months. As global markets remain turbulent adaptive organizations are investing in proactive envisioining that maximizes collective brainpower.

Making extensive use of visualized customer research and future horizon trends, Humantific designed the learning experience, the data/information fields, the envisioning exercises as well as the skill-building program within.

Physical experience future envisioning gives employees the opportunity to step away from their daily activities, deliberately focus on the future and make constructive use of their own marketplace observations while engaging with colleagues from many disciplines. Its also an opportunity to do common-language cocreation skill-building across the organization so it adds multiple levels of value simmaltaneoulsy.

We can’t tell you what exactly happens in confidential client sessions but we can say that each is focused on generating scores of constructive outcomes that are directly useful to the company in various ways.

Connecting the dots between new generation leadership, proactive envisioning and everyday innovation, many organizational leaders are looking for ways to make innovation real, inclusive and actionable by design rather than by accident.

Humantific & FutureBankingLab

[slideshow id=50]

All organizational leaders, perhaps especially those in the financial services industry, are facing enormous continous change today. For more than a year, Humantific has been working with the The Inter-American Development Bank’s FutureBankingLab designing and delivering a traveling proactive Beyond Banking Program.

The FutureBankingLab is essentially a multi-disciplinary, global think tank formed by institutions and experts in different areas of banking. It travels around the globe involving many stakeholders in structured dialogue.

Its purpose is to explore challenges and opportunties accross the global banking system at this time of great change. One of its functions is to promote sustainable governance principles that will empower the industry to thrive in a challenging future.

Having kicked off the program last year in Cologne, Germany, Humantific was recently invited back to lead the facilitation of another round of sessions in Madrid, this time focused on developing strategies to fund “The Missing Middle” in Latin America and the Caribbean’s financial sector, in  collaboration with IDB, BBVA (Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria) and the MIF (Multilateral Investment Fund).

Future Envisioning Financial Services

Financial services giant Wells Fargo recently partnered with Humantific to create an innovation envisioning experience for hundreds of stakeholders to proactively explore possible future customer experience scenarios. Like much of the strategy work that Humantific does the mechanics of this on going project remain highly confidential so we can only describe the project in general terms here.

Humantifc was asked to create an envisioning skill-building experience that 500 Wells Fargo employees could participate in over a period of several months in San Francisco.

To create the jump field we combined present and future research made visible. In constructing the future made visible fields Humantific worked closely with Institute of the Future and the Wells Fargo experience design leadership team in California. 

In each envisioning session Humantific teaches a common language set of cross-disciplinary cocreation skills that connect directly into the forward looking Wells Fargo strategy.

The purpose of the workshop series is to proactively envision possible customer experiences, products and services in the financial services industry of the future. Although we are often asked to focus workshop designs in particular direction the skills that we teach in the Complexity Navigation leadership program can be applied by leaders in any changemaking context. 

The outcomes of the multiple envisioning sessions will inform future strategies and customer oriented value creation at Wells Fargo. The first round of sessions have been so successful Humantific has been asked to create a 3 day version with much more strategic cocreation skill-building added.

Complexity Navigation is a new generation leadership program that applies to all industries challenged with effective change making.
