In this episode, Naomi chats to ACM Master Lydia Harris about innovation. Currently Enterprise Change Manager at the Earthquake Foundation in New Zealand, Lydia was CMI NZ’s Volunteer of the Year in 2020. She’s been contracting for 15 years and her experience includes portfolio management, transformation, putting in enterprise resource planning tools like SAP, Oracle, PeopleSoft and culture and behavioural initiatives. In the past few years, Lydia has been helping build their change maturity through re-invention of their change strategy and purpose with a focus on business leadership, capability, frameworks and methodologies. 

Naomi says: “In our conversation, Lydia key message is about re-invention and value.  She shared the concept of the ‘Titanic Syndrome’ in which organisations orchestrate their own downfall through arrogance, excessive attachment to the past or an inability to recognise the new or emerging reality. Reinvention is innovation. A key takeaway for me is Lydia’s statement that “you can never automate involvement”. Listeners, get your pens ready because Lydia shares a lot of great resources in this podcast including some innovative examples from NZ government.
