There is a lot of excitement about VR and AR right now but one of the more interesting areas is in how immersive media helps evolve the way people communicate. We believe these tools have the potential to shorten distance for people – physical, emotional, political, or social - and bring the world closer together. How should strategists be thinking about these technologies and how they will evolve?

How TAL Uses Innovation To Drive Long Term Sustainable GrowthDan Canham
12:30 - 1:00South Pier
Innovation is achieved by providing something original that produces efficiency. For an innovative idea to be useful, it has to be replicable without being too expensive and it has to resolve a particular need. By developing original concepts, innovation gives companies an edge in penetrating markets faster. When a company has an innovative culture, growth is achievable, despite the fact that the creative process isn't always simple. TAL uses a customer centric approach to innovating and Dan will talk about harnessing your creative ability, setting up the right teams, solving the right problems and the importance of process and governance.

Innovation From Inside Out - Using Small Steps To Gain Momentum & Shift MindsetJodie Granger
1:55 - 2:25South Pier
Imagine being able to efficiently move from strategy to initiative to delivery without all the obstacles common to large corporate enterprise. Strategic endeavour is often stifled by social and cultural issues, not least the competition over resources in a bid to maximise value. Reallocating resources away from the core in an environment increasingly expected to do more with less, challenges most businesses and is often why great ideas fail to come to fruition. A coherent narrative to align the organisation and demonstrate benefit, although important, will not in itself be sufficient. Innovation and design methodologies, often pioneered in digital teams, can be adopted in a wider context to help work through the strategic uncertainty and ambiguity constraining many organisations. Small steps to test and learn, creating space to navigate complexity from within can then be expanded for an accelerated way of working.

How To Monetise Innovations?Chris Petzoldt
10:20 - 10:50South Pier
"Innovation. It’s a clarion call for every business… in every industry… in every corner of the world. It’s the most important driver of growth and, in today’s marketplace, critical to survival. But successful innovation – measured in dollars and cents – remains elusive. Companies invest substantially in designing and building products. Yet they struggle to monetise them. Billions of dollars are spent and lost every year because more than 70 percent of innovations fail to meet financial goals – or fail entirely. It doesn’t have to be this way. By involving your customer early on and other best practices you can increase your success rate!"

Digitising The Mortgage Process With E-SignTim Roberts
3:55 - 4:25South Pier
We started with a paper home loan process that was costly, inconvenient and contributed to missed settlements. A small multi-disciplinary team moved quickly to design, build and improve an electronic signature portal to achieve a secure, paperless solution. Westpac also worked with regulators and lawmakers to be the first Australian major bank to offer electronic signature of the mortgage document without a witness. The solution allows customers to securely authenticate into a virtual private cloud hosted application to sign, upload and download loan documents. The outcome was a great customer experience, significant cost savings, reduction in errors and increase in lender productivity.
Behavioural Innovation ExperimentHardik Bhimani

"Many of the problems innovation managers face relate to understanding how human psychology influences innovation conceptualisation, processes and practices. The field of behavioural innovation hosts such debate and holds promise to approach these challenges in an inter-disciplinary way. This workshop will delve into the cognitive science behind human behaviour in innovation idea management. It will showcase methods to help you understand what motivates people to act a certain way within a system of influences, and how to design processes for behaviour change."
