Age of Imagination - Designing and Shaping Your NDIS Future
The NDIS framework is being established in WA to support a better life for hundreds of thousands of Western Australians with a significant and permanent disability, their families and carers.
At the same time, it also presents numerous challenges and should be regarded as the ultimate ‘disrupter’ in the sector. NDIS provider organisations are not immune to this disruption and need to develop a resilient and imaginative leadership culture to deliver on its corporate strategy. Under the NDIS, the purchaser and the customer will be the same person, and they can choose to take their funding package elsewhere. With this fundamental market shift, the way NDIS provider organisations now engages with their market will also require a radical and rapid change.
There is one thing for certain – our business schools have for a long time taught us models and theories that were suitable in stable, slow moving business environments. Our traditional levers of business excellence such as ‘control’, ‘measure’, and ‘efficiency’ now only hold a threshold value. They will not enable our survival in a fast-moving volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment.
For the most part, the business world has ignored the science. There is a disconnect between what businesses do and what science tells us. Sadly, businesses continue to use outdated processes and thinking patterns developed during the industrial age. Science and recent corporate experiences have proven these as ineffective and not suited to the ‘Imagination Age’ we now operate in. Today, creativity and imagination have become the primary creators of economic value.
NDS in collaboration with Corporate Sherpas is offering a developmental workshop (Age of Imagination) for the NDIS providers to develop required skills in order to:
- Harness the powers of their imagination;
- Solve organisational problems and challenges; and
- Come up with creative and innovative ways to respond to changes that lie ahead of them.
The workshops are designed to progress the strategic direction of the organisation into an agile, flexible, resilient and aligned operational plan. Its main aim is to foster innovative thinking and design of services that take a pro-active approach to disruption in the market place.
The workshop will run over four half days over a period of two months, and will include theory and practical applications.
Leaders will learn the Business Model Canvas methodology to inform a business strategy using the nine categories that form the building blocks of an organisation (including the key partners, key business activities, value proposition, customer relationship, customer segment, key resources, distribution channel, and cost structure and revenue stream). Specific outcomes will include:
- Convert strategy discussions into practical outcomes
- Create a shared language around business models and strategy
- Improve collaboration across disciplines and geographical boundaries
- Understanding factors that contribute to failures of start-up initiatives
