About the Talk


When organisations are often too ponderous to innovate, what proven approaches exist to bridge the internal gap between the opposing needs of entrepreneurialism and operationalism?

This talk will explore emerging approaches that utilise the internal tensions between innovators and conservative communities. We’ll explore the importance of designing for team structures and communication pathways that are driven by cognitive load and end-to-end value creation.

These approaches create the conditions that will support risk-taking, enable greater agility and increase market competitiveness.


– The rate of organisational adaptability must be greater than the market’s
– The barriers to innovation, such as operational culture, stifles the emergence of entrepreneurialism
– The myths and mistakes organisations make when attempting to create innovation and alignment
– Utilising the natural tension between traditionalists and entrepreneurs to create lasting innovation
– Creating end-to-end value using team topologies which considers cognitive load and clear collaboration lines
– Research and personal stories of how organisations have overcome scepticism and have achieved innovation and greater business agility

Talk format

Duration: Ideally 60 minutes.

About Dean Latchana

I support organisations to succeed in a dynamic market by helping them to develop awareness and ways of working that are contextual to their needs.

I advise and guide organisations to gain a new set of competencies so they can continuously re-optimise to an ever-changing business landscape. I co-develop change to remove organisational debt to create a more balanced focus for innovation.

In order to achieve this, as a Business Agility Consultant, my role is to support business transformation programmes and develop new ways of working across departments. I teach departments, and coach & mentor individuals.
